A Review of “The Pathology of Homicide”
The subtitle of this book reads “A Vade Mecum for Pathologist, Prosecutor and Defense Counsel.” It is indeed a vade mecum, in the sense that it is “a book for ready reference” (Def. 1). We do not recommend that it be “regularly carried about by a person” (Def. 2). Weighing nearly 2.6 kg, this handbook is more like a tome.
