In its original form, it was approved as a thesis for the degree Master of Arts by the University of Cape Town, 1989. The author has read extensively and the bibliography includes an impressive list of especially secondary sources, virtually all of which have been used intelligently in setting theories and counter-theories in context. The work is largely analytical, based on previously expounded interpretations placed in juxtaposition to the relative views of John Fairbairn as published in his South African Commercial Advertiser editorials, both in an economic and political sense.
