About this book

This book provides an account of the international emergence of corporate manslaughter offences to criminalise deaths in the workplace during the last twenty years, identifying the limitations of health and safety regulation that have prompted this development.

About the authors

PAUL ALMOND is a Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Reading, UK. He completed his PhD at the University of Birmingham focusing on the enforcement of work-related fatality cases. He has subsequently published numerous journal articles about the enforcement of health and safety regulation.

Reviews

"Almond seeks to 'explain and better understand contemporary trends towards the use of criminal law as a means for holding corporate bodies accountablefor work-related deaths'. This book offers an important contribution given the increasing dominance of corporations, especially multinational ones, in political, social, and economic spheres. While his analysis concentrates on

the United Kingdom, the United States, and to a lesser degree, Australia, Almond's consideration of corporate culpability is truly international." - Criminal Law and Criminal Justice
