aftermath of the South African War, or Second-Anglo Boer War (1899–1902), brought many Dutch-speaking South Afrikaners to the fold of empire and monarchy. As an 1878 editorial reflects, loyalism – despite developing antagonisms between British and Boer – was extremely important to the identity and sense of legitimacy of the Cape Afrikaners, as described by Hermann Giliomee

support to the IAPA, which was relatively isolated in Britain due to its difficult relationship with the Peace Society. For example, during the second Anglo-Boer war, when the Peace Society resisted all calls to campaign for peace, the IAPA (along with the WLPA and the LBWPAS) developed a range of strategies, including public meetings, petitions and peace propaganda to protest against the war. The IPB assisted with these wherever it could. For example, its central Committee wrote to the British Prime Minister reminding him of the promises made by the British government

Ireland would be exploited as Britain’s strategic Achilles heel in any conflict. The service of Major John MacBride’s Irish Transvaal Brigade (colloquially known as ‘MacBride’s brigade’) with the Boers and Imperial Germany during the Second Anglo-​Boer War (1899–​1902) foreshadowed future links. It presaged Sir Roger Casement’s efforts in Germany during First World War to enlist German imperial support for the Irish revolutionary cause. In general, Imperial Germany lacked a detailed understanding of the forces at work in Irish society after its decades of neglect of

out in one of the cities, Cape Town, during a colonial war, the second Anglo-Boer war. Nonetheless the two cities had much in common. When plague broke out both had a large number of transients. As a result of the troops sent to fight and refugees fleeting the war in the Transvaal, Cape Town had an abnormally high immigrant population. 7 In its normal course, Hong Kong was a gathering point for

symbols appeared in their respective armies’ uniforms, rather than the traditional uniforms of Union Jack waistcoat, and suit made from the Stars and Stripes ( Figure 4.14 ). The transformation of Anglo-American identity and its symbolism was also driven by the simultaneity of colonial rebellion in the Philippines and protracted imperial warfare in South Africa. A month after the second Anglo-Boer war broke out on the Rand in October 1899, Uncle Sam was depicted on the cover of Puck sending ‘good will’ to John Bull as British troops were being rushed to relieve Boer

prevention of such ‘detriment’ was fundamental to the Sons’ mind-set.175 Within both themes explored ‒ United States ‒ Canadian relations and the complexities of French Canada ‒ one development amplified the situation: the Second Anglo-Boer War (1899–1902). It was a time when some commentators began to wish ‘for the humiliation of the AngloSaxon race and the downfall of the British Empire’,176 while pro-Boer sentiments, for instance as expressed by many a United States journalist, could keep alive ‘the insensate hatred of England … among a large class’.177 The Sons did, of

Anglo-Boer War (1899– 1902).21 The seeds of this discourse of rebellion, however, were clearly evident in the earlier dialogues of the WEU: and it was a rhetoric that overrode considerations of social class to focus on disenfranchisement from a perspective which privileged gender. Though the organisation advocated an ‘open, democratic, egalitarian and pioneering society’ freed from the ugliness of urbanisation’s social ills, the organisation’s first months, however, were far from a utopian idyll.22 Two disputes Despite their fruitful relationship, Harriot Stanton

imperialism during the Second Anglo-Boer War. As we have seen, she was vilified by opponents and subjected to physical attack, when the windows of her home were smashed on Mafeking night. The experience did not disillusion her. During the war years, 1914–18, there was a tendency for political parties to try to co-operate but she maintained the opposition to which she had given voice in journals and meetings. There was a coalition government from 1915, at first under the leadership of Herbert Asquith and later, from 1916, under Lloyd George (b. 1863). Nonetheless, Mary
