More about the book!
Jonathan Ball Publishers and The Reading List invite you to the virtual book launch of Give Us More Guns: How South Africa’s Gangs were Armed by Mark Shaw.
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.
Shaw will be in conversation with journalist and author Mandy Wiener.
‘With remarkable courage, insight and access, Mark Shaw takes the reader into the darkest corners of South Africa’s ganglands.’ – Mandy Wiener
