Hardback. 21 cases taken from the 20th century. Each case was carefully selected because of some particular feature of interest. They have been grouped under various headings, which ensures that the reader may study particular types of murder in turn, together with the police and scientific evidence which resulted in a conviction. The problem of insanity and the M'Naghten Rules figures largely in a number of these cases, showing how difficult it is to find a solution to medico-legal differences of opinion.
