In the Shadow of Sharpeville by Peter Parker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book takes a scalpel to South Africa's system of criminal justice during the Apartheid era. It focuses on the case of the Sharpeville Six to analyse how criminal justice was biased to make convictions easy to secure. The book analyses the technicalities of the criminal law, as well as the quality of evidence and judicial reasoning in the case against the Six. It also conveys vividly through letters from death row the sense people make of their impending execution and how an international campaign to save their lives succeeded with 18 hours to spare.
