dc.description.abstract This dissertation investigates the reaction of blacks in the Transvaal to the introduction and application of the National Party's policy of apartheid during the years 1948-1955. At the outset the philosophy of apartheid, as explained and motivated by its propagators and government spokesmen, is outlined. The arguments of early critics, especially black people, against the policy are briefly indicated. This is followed by discussions of black reaction, mainly in the Transvaal, to the different laws passed during the period. The main purpose is to show what arguments were levelled by blacks against these acts and the policy. The feelings and experiences of black people at the time were focused upon. The responses of blacks in the form of protests and political ideas as expressed especially in the programme of action (1949), the defiance campaign (1952), the meeting of the congress of the people and the acceptance of the freedom charter (1955) are dealt with. en
