On 26 April 2005 the Commission received a reference from the Attorney General, the Hon. Jim McGinty MLA, to examine and report upon the law of homicide in Western Australia. In particular, the Commission was asked to give consideration to: (i) the distinction between wilful murder and murder; (ii) the defences or partial excuses to homicide, including self-defence and provocation; (iii) current penalty provisions relating to the law of homicide; and (iv) any related matter. The Commission was further asked to report on the adequacy of the existing law, practices and procedures in relation to homicide offences and defences and the desirability of changes to those laws.

This comparative study looks at the laws concerning the murder of slaves by their masters and at how these laws were implemented. Andrew T. Fede cites a wide range of cases--across time, place, and circumstance--to illuminate legal, judicial, and other complexities surrounding this regrettably common occurrence. These laws had evolved to limit in different ways the masters' rights to severely punish and even kill their slaves while protecting valuable enslaved people, understood as "property," from wanton destruction by hirers, overseers, and poor whites who did not own slaves. To explore the conflicts of masters' rights with state and colonial laws, Fede shows how slave homicide law evolved and was enforced not only in the United States but also in ancient Roman, Visigoth, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and British jurisdictions. His comparative approach reveals how legal reforms regarding slave homicide in antebellum times, like past reforms dictated by emperors and kings, were the products of changing perceptions of the interests of the public; of the individual slave owners; and of the slave owners' families, heirs, and creditors. Although some slave murders came to be regarded as capital offenses, the laws con-sistently reinforced the second-class status of slaves. This influence, Fede concludes, flowed over into the application of law to free African Americans and would even make itself felt in the legal attitudes that underlay the Jim Crow era.

The Sinai peninsula--a fabled triangle of land squeezed between Africa and Asia--harbors a rich deposit of cultural history. For many centuries, Sinai has served as a pivotal transit station, a lively route of caravans, armies, missionaries, and pilgrimages, and a military shield for Egypt. Sinai is also known as the crossroads of the world's three major religions: the site of Moses' exodus, it has subsequently been the entry point for Christianity's and Islam's spread into Africa and Asia. Formerly isolated from the Egyptian mainland, Sinai is today poised on the threshold of new era. After regaining Sinai from Israel, Egypt encouraged Sinai's integration with the motherland, emphasizing its potential for tourism.Sinai: The Site and the Historyaccordingly provides a point of reference from which this land can be discovered and rediscovered. The work of a distinguished group of journalists and scholars, with over 60 stunning color photographs, Sinai provides a comprehensive picture of the region: its breathtaking geography, its remarkable secular and religious history, and the culture and customs of its Bedouin peoples.

The book “Criminal Law: Homicide” deals specifically on homicide as a subject in criminal law. With the book, I carefully carved homicide law out of criminal law by focusing on court cases dealing with homicide and by asking thought-provoking questions that provide better understanding and knowledge of the crime of homicide as a branch of criminal law.

No legal system in the world has aroused as much public interest as Sharia. However, the discourse around Sharia law is largely focussed on its development and the theories, principles and rules that inform it. Less attention has been given to studying the consequences of its operation, particularly in the area of Islamic criminal law. Even fewer studies explore the actual practice of Islamic criminal law in contemporary societies. This book aims to fill these gaps in our understanding of Sharia law in practice. It deals specifically with the consequences of enforcing Islamic criminal law in Pakistan, providing an in-depth and critical analysis of the application of the Islamic law of Qisas and Diyat (retribution and blood money) in the Muslim world today. The empirical evidence adduced more broadly demonstrates the complications of applying traditional Sharia in a modern state.

This work provides comprehensive coverage of the substantive case law on homicide and non-fatal assaults in Uganda. It is based on judicial interpretation of the Uganda Penal Code: the principal criminal legislation in the country. Using records of the Ugandan courts as well as the pre-independence English court records, the book details cases when important judgements have set precedents for future decisions. The book further discusses how wider policy issues of contemporary society such as gender, human rights, children's rights, constitutionalism and HIV/AIDS are impacting on criminal law and informing law reform from a human rights' perspective. Contents: ingredients common to all homicides; the offence of murder; attempted murder; the death penalty and murder; the defence of diminished responsibility; suicide; voluntary manslaughter; self-defence and murder; homicides related to infants and unborn children; involuntary manslaughter; non-fatal assaults; bibliography; and index of cases. Lillian Tibatemwa-Ekirikubinza is Associate Professor of Law at Makerere University, Uganda.

This book provides a leading point of reference in the field of partial defences to murder and with respect to the mental condition defences of loss of control and diminished responsibility in general. The work includes contributions from leading specialists from different jurisdictions. Divided into two parts, the first provides an analysis from the perspective of the UK, looking at particular concerns such as domestic violence, revenge and mixed motive killings, mistaken beliefs. The second part presents a comparative and international view to provide a wider background of how alternative systems treat issues of human frailty short of full insanity (loss of control, diminished responsibility) in the context of the criminal law.
