Review quote

"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
