Abstract

This historiographical review essay on Anglo-Boer War literature provides a critical commentary on a selection of recently published English- and Afrikaans-language historical works and war fiction associated with the centenary of the South African conflict, pointing to the growth of several new perspectives on the experience of the 1899-1902 hostilities, such as gender and the notion of total war. It suggests that there is now an increasingly inclusive scholarly understanding of the terms of the conflict, and that fruitful future study of its significance may well lie in historical comparison.
