Homicide: Trends, Causes and Prevention $89.00
Editors: Randal B. Toliver and Ulrich R. Coyne
Book Description:
Homicide refers to the act of killing another human being. There are many types of homicide, including criminal homicide, when a person purposely, knowingly, recklessly or negligently causes the death of another (i.e., murder and manslaughter), and there is non-criminal homicide in which the law allows homicide by allowing certain defenses to criminal charges (i.e, self-defense). This book examines new developments in this field.
