One hundred years after the Boer War, the British continue to debate what went wrong, while the war has significant nationalist overtones in today's South Africa. This book examines changes in interpretations of the war and provides a bibliography of major sources on the Boer War, now sometimes called the South African War. The bibliography focuses on the military history, but also includes some historical accounts of the political debate. The first part of the book provides an extended historiographical essay, while part two provides an annotated bibliography of the titles discussed in part one.

Historiographical questions concerning the Boer War are numerous. Discussions of military operations focus on the early use of modern weaponry and the effect of guerrilla tactics on a traditional force, while other historians debate the question of British military leadership and organization. Questions also revolve around British imperialism and the scramble for Africa. Frequently called the second war for freedom by South African authors, the war was the reason that South Africa, unlike other British colonies, gained independence without majority rule. This makes the war of continuing relevance to the turmoil in South Africa, the collapse of the minority government, and the continuing problems of the current government. This book will provide a useful tool for those wishing to research the war.

Bibliographies of Battles and Leaders Series. Westport, CT and London: Greenwood Press, 2000. The centennial minor boom in writing on the Anglo-Boer War continues. van Hartesveldt's literature guide, a book almost as meaty as Lord Kitchener's mess table, appears in a Greenwood press Battles and Leaders series, and at a pretty imposing price. This is a volume clearly aimed at the reference library market or at the kind of Anglo-Boer buff who would want to devote an afternoon to finding the 8th Battalion of the Durham Light Infantry (p. 203), rugby or no rugby.
