By Graham, E. MaudEdited by Dawson, MichaelEdited by Gidney, CatherineEdited by Klausen, Susanne M.
As the South African War reached its grueling end in 1902, colonial interests at the highest levels of the British Empire hand-picked teachers from across the Commonwealth to teach the thousands of Afrikaner women, children, and non-combatants held in concentration camps. Highly ...educated, hard-working, and often opinionated, E. Maud Graham joined the Canadian contingent of forty teachers. Her account reveals the complexity of relations and tensions at a controversial period in Britain's history. Graham presents a lively historical travel memoir, and the editors have provided rich political and historical context to her narrative in the Introduction and generous annotations. This annotated reprint is a rare primary source for experts in Colonial Studies, Women's Studies, and Canadian, South African, and British Imperial History.Read more
