More about the book!
Join Daily Maverick associate editor Marianne Thamm for a conversation with Mark Shaw, author of the new book Give Us More Guns: How South Africa’s Gangs were Armed.
Shaw is director of the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime.
Based on hundreds of interviews with police and the criminal underworld, Give Us More Guns explores how the illegally sold guns got into the hands of South Africa’s crime bosses. The book describes the bloodbath that ensued and uncovers accounts of rampant corruption within the police and in the gun-licensing system, probing the government failure that has been instrumental in arming the country’s gangsters.
