Journalist and violence researcher Dr Nechama Brodie challenges many of the myths used to narrate farm killings, using information gathered from decades of news reports, statistical data, legal cases and research on violence on farms, including violence experienced by farm labourers and in black communities surrounding mostly white-owned farmlands.

Nechama Brodie has written for the Mail & Guardian, Sunday Times, City Press, the UK Guardian and the Indian Hindustan Times. Between 2013 and 2018 she worked with independent fact-checking organisation Africa Check, launching and heading up the group’s training and research division TRI Facts. A lecturer at the University of the Witwatersrand’s school of journalism, she is acting coordinator of the Wits Justice Project. She is the author of seven books, including Femicide in South Africa and two novels, Three Bodies and Knucklebone.
