To Preserve and Protect – Dr Anastasia Dukova
In store event at the Avid Reader Bookshop.
Join Dr Anastasia Dukova at the Avid Reader Bookshop, West End, as she discusses her latest publication To Preserve and Protect: Policing Colonial Brisbane.
With limited seating available, prompt registration is recommended to hear historian Anastasia detail early Australian policing with its roots on the streets of Dublin and London, where many of Australia’s first law and order enforcers hailed from.
The book exposes political power abuse, corruption, mismanagement, professional burnout and gendered justice, issues which continue to challenge police forces. Intrigued by this connection, Dr Dukova has recreated the lives of colonial police officers and criminals in her adopted home city of Brisbane. Through exploring their personal stories, Dukova highlights how biography and history are inextricably linked and reveals the differences between metropolitan aspirations and colonial reality.
