9780198273820: Black and Blue: Policing in South Africa

The South African Police Force is among the world's most controversial police forces, plagued by allegations of misconduct and archaic methods. John Brewer places these problems in their historical context through this detailed study of the origins and development of policing in South Africa. Brewer sees a major problem in the lack of modernization: long after similar forces around the world had been modernized, South African Police continued to discharge a colonial role, using policing methods and styles suitable for the nineteenth century. Brewer eloquently links this lack of modernization and development to the South African state's need for a police force to uphold and implement its policies of internal colonialism. He argues further that this is the source of the close relationship between the police and state in South Africa. Now that the South African government has been transformed, the police force must adapt. Brewer concludes with a discussion of reform and warns that it will be severely constrained if it fails to transcend its colonial origins.

Review:


"A major contribution to the literature."--The Criminologist


"Brewer's lucid and compelling study of the South African police as both authority and institution is a most important contribution to both historical and sociological studies of South Africa....This book is a treasure trove for all who would understand how apartheid worked, day-to-day, in keeping a nation off-balance and oppressed."--Choice

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1994. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 223 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The South African Police is one of the world s most controversial police forces. In this, the first detailed study of the origins and development of policing in South Africa, John Brewer places current allegations of police misconduct in their historical context. Long after similar forces elsewhere in the world had been modernized, the South African Police were continuing to discharge a colonial role, using the methods and style of the nineteenth century. Dr Brewer links this lack of development and modernization to the South African state s need for colonialism. It is this, he argues, that is also the source of the close relationship between police and state in South Africa. Now that government policies have changed, the SAP must adapt: Dr Brewer ends by addressing the vexed question of police reform and argues that it will be severely constrained by the SAP s failure to transcend its colonial origins.
