`Copiously footnoted, the book has extensive tables of cases and legislation, a useful index and a massive bibliography of almost twelve pages. What a find for those doing detailed research on this subject.' Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers `[A] fascinating monograph that challenges many received ideas and tendencies, and puts forward a nuanced view of the forces that should ideally operate to shape the law of homicide.'
