"The aim of this chapter, following Inglis, is not to examine the Boer war as such, but to analyse press coverage in the context of cable technology upon which colonial newspapers were reliant for regular war news. In relation to the theme of this collection, the chapter also assesses the extent to which the cable and press nexus promoted a consensus fabourable to the imperial conduct of the war."
