Foreword by Patricia de Lille.
"A great newspaper, said Arthur Miller, is a nation taking to itself. The stories on the newspapers Gasant Abarder edited let readers meet, understand and ultimately reach out to one another across the divides and the echo chambers. Hack with a Grenade is an endearing collection of the best of these backstories and a timely reminder of the enduring importance of great journalism." Kevin Ritchie, former editor of The Star
"This book reminds us why the news media must survive, not for the overburdened journalists at the helm but for the people whose stories they carry." Khadija Patel, former editor-in-chief, Mail & Guardian
Former Cape Times and Cape Argus editor Gasant Abarder is currently Media, Marketing and Communications Manager at the University of the Western Cape.
