Abstract:Examination of one aspect of the 'business partition' of Africa, namely Anglo-German economic rivalry on the Rand between 1886 and 1900, in particular the activites of the German-financed Netherlands South African Railway Company (NZASM), which possessed the monopoly of construction and management of all railways connecting the republic with a seaport. The article assesses the company's impact on the relations of the South African Republic with both the maritime colonies of the Cape and Natal and with Great Britain. Notes, sum., tab.
