More about the book!
Jacana Media and The Book Lounge invite you to the launch of Southern African Muckraking: 150 Years of Investigative Journalism which has Shaped the Region, edited by Anton Harber.
This book celebrates the rich, varied and untold history of investigative journalism in southern Africa and the crucial role it has played in shaping the region over the last 300 years.
It tells of the escapades of those who exposed atrocities of the British colonial rulers, the seizure of land from black owners, apartheid death squads, prison conditions, farm labour, government and corporate corruption, environmental travesty and health issues.
Southern African Muckraking highlights the long record of accountability journalism in countries such as South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe, and the recent surge of such work in others such as Botswana and Malawi.
