This item is sold brand new. It is ordered on demand from our supplier and is usually dispatched within 24 hours 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. Young journalists who have previously studied the likes of the Watergate scandal will have access to African journalists who faced huge risks to expose the abuse of power, ranging from the undercover exploits of the legendary ‘Mr Drum', through to the recent #Guptaleaks expos, of which it was said, ‘Seldom have journalists played such a crucial role in bringing a country back from the brink.' The book 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. It breaks new ground in stretching the history of this type of journalism decades further back than previously recorded, including largely ignored work such as John Dube's coverage of the Zulu Bambatha Rebellion and Richard Msimang's documentation of the impact of land confiscation in the early 20th century. The book includes an introduction by Anton Harber, editor and professor, and each case study is written up by an expert in the area.
