Apartheid Guns and Money: A tale of profit

Thu, 2017-09-14
13:00 to 14:00
The Political Studies Department will be hosting author, Hennie van Vuuren, and researcher, Michael Marchant who will be presenting their book Apartheid Guns and Money: A Tale of Profit. They will also discuss the work of Open Secrets in holding the corrupt to account. This meticulously researched book finally lifts the lid on some of the darkest secrets of apartheid’s economic crimes, weaving together newly declassified documents and eye-witness accounts. This is an expose of the machinery created in defence of apartheid and in support of sanctions busting and the people who profited: heads of state, arms dealers, aristocrats, plutocrats, senators, bankers, spies, journalists, and members of secret lobby groups. In creating the apartheid arms money machine, they were complicit in a crime against humanity.
