This collective volume offers insights into the South African underworld and its foes. The authors - South Africa's leading criminologists, sociologists, independent researchers, investigators and prosecutors - offer a cutting appraisal of the intelligence and detective services in the light of the recent Western Cape bombings, they look at why violence persists in the taxi industry and at what's wrong in the prosecution services in South Africa. Finally, they present a shocking and sometimes humorous investigation into how crime statistics are compiled and interpreted and they discuss how crime can be fought in South Africa. Contributors: Antony Altbeker, André de Vries, Jackie Dugard, Maria Hauck, Stephen Laufer, Antoinette Louw, Joy Pelo, Rita Potenza, Pule Rampa, Gaironesa Saban, Wilfried Schärf, Martin Schönteich, Lauren Segal, Khehla Shubane, Graeme Simpson, Jonny Steinberg.
