Beschreibung

This book is a history of the production and marketing of diamonds from the period of the "rush" to Kimberly and the rise of de Beers until the formation of the Central Selling Organization by South African producers and London and South African merchants.

'major contribution ... In his painstaking research through the dense and difficult thickets of official and business archives, Newbury provides a valuable and, sadly, rare insight into South African business history. The book is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the development of the southern African economy after the 1880s.' Richard Rathbone, Princeton University, American Historical Review, February 1992
