IFAA Forum: Book Launch of ‘Shoot to Kill: Police and Power in South Africa

Surplus Books, Inkani Books, The Tri-Continental Institute for Social Research, and The Institute for African Alternatives, invite you to the launch of the riveting new book by Christopher McMichael Shoot to Kill: Police and Power in South Africa.  From the slave-driver’s whip in the 18th century Cape Colony to the dystopian armored vehicles of our present, this book traces the secret history of the police through colonial wars, apartheid atrocities, and hyper-capitalist state capture.’

Christopher McMichael is a cultural critic and political commentator whose work has appeared in New Frame, Mail & Guardian, Daily Maverick, Antipode, and Capital & Class. This event will include a response by Dr Irwin Kinnes of the Centre for Criminology at UCT and the discussion will also be joined by Jeremy Vearey, former Deputy Provincial Commissioner of the Western Cape SAPS and author of the book ‘Into Dark Water: A Police Memoir.’

Please join us at Surplus Radical Books, 302 Albert Road, Woodstock on Thursday, 15th September 2022, at 6 pm.
