Series: Law, Crime and Law Enforcement; Laws and Legislation
BISAC: LAW026000; LAW051000; BUS070120

This book promotes the relatively new concept of food manslaughter or manslaughter by unsafe food and is presented in light of the laws of Australia, Bangladesh and India with sporadic references to the laws of the United Kingdom, the United States and a few countries from the Asia-Pacific region. Analysis persuasively justifies the characterisation of this heinous crime as criminally negligent manslaughter considering the elements of the offence together with different theories of criminalisation and deterrence.

This book provides novel research and is the first of its kind in the existing literature. It will be an immensely useful resource for researchers, academics, practitioners, prosecutors, regulators, and consumers in general to fight for the right to safe food.
