Excerpt from The South African Diamond Fields The Diamond Fields of South Africa occupy, at present, the precise position that the gold discoveries of California and Australia did some years ago. Hundreds of emigrants are waiting for reliable information before starting for these fields. Journalists in the Old World and the New have been attracted by the dazzling accounts of the valuable gems that have been found. These finds have been published with all the attractiveness that bold type could give them, but, with the bare announcement, all information has ended, and most of those who have read the news and sighed at the success of the lucky ones, know as little of the land where these fortunes have been picked up, as they do of the interior arrangement of the crater of Vesuvius. It is a very noticeable feature connected with the diamond regions, that the ih formation which has been disseminated through the medium of the press, has, more frequently than otherwise, been unreliable, and in no instance, probably from the fact that in a newspaper sufficient space could not be afforded, has there been published the details which alone could guide those abroad in determining whether it is advisable for them to try their fortune in diamond digging in South Africa. A large number of pamphlets, it is true, have been circulated; but it must be remembered that most, if not all of them, have emanated from those who have some object or other to induce emigration. The writer of this has no interest to serve but that of giving those particulars which he conceives will be of assistance to those whose thoughts are turned toward the Cape Colony in consequence of these diamond discoveries. It is very probable that this pamphlet may have the effect of prevent ing some men from throwing up comfortable certainties at home to embark in this great diamond lottery; but those who come, after hav ing gone carefully through this work, will, it is certain, be of the right class; and will no more regret their hazard at the fields than the colony will have to mourn over their presence.

This book is a thorough study of the legislative, executive and administrative institutions that have come into being in South Africa from 1652 to 1988. The author has gone beyond historical facts to explain why under the influence of religious dogma, political theory and party politics the constitution has developed in one direction rather than another. The originality of the contribution of each identified historical phase to the constitutional development of South Africa is also considered.

I am very pleased to have been asked to write the foreword to this book. The technical advances in diagnostic radiology in the last few decades have transformed clinical practice and have been nothing short of astonishing. The subject of diagnostic radiology is now very large and radiology depa- ments are involved in all areas of modern patient care.The defining event in m- ern radiology,and arguably the most significant development in radiology since Wilhelm Röntgen discovered X-rays, was the invention of the CT scanner in the 1970s.The CT scanner introduced modern cross-sectional imaging and also di- tal imaging.We now have MRI and ultrasound and these techniques are replacing many traditional X-ray procedures.The developments in radiology have been the result of a fruitful interaction between the basic sciences, clinical medicine and the manufacturers. This can be seen by looking at the various sources of these publications. Change is produced by the interactions between the various dis- plines. The editors have had a very difficult task in selecting the key discoveries and descriptions.The radiological literature is very large.Medical imaging continues to develop rapidly and these papers are the foundations of our current practice.
