A thesis handed in to the Faculty of the Graduate
Doctor of Philosophy.
This work was prepared under great difficulty. South African official publications are very poorly represented in libraries abroad — especially in the United States of America. There is, however, enough “light literature” or political literature on South Africa in a library like the Harvard Widener Memorial Library, and the Library of Congress buys plenty of South African official publications which might then be borrowed by students under certain conditions. Moreover, a South African “Hansard” will be of inestimable value to the research student abroad.
I beg to acknowledge my gratitude especially to the following persons: The Hon. F. W: Reitz, President of the South African Senate; Professor Allyn A. Young, professor of banking at Harvard University (and formerly at Cornell); Professor E. M. Patterson, Chairman of the Department of Economics at the University of Pennsylvania; Senator, the Hon. E. R. Grobler; and to my wife. Nobody but the author is responsible for the opinions expressed in the following work.
