Reviews

'In this well-constructed empirical study Moore provides insight on the contemporary role of coronial recommendations. This goes to the heart of the efficacy of the coroner's preventive function. She explores the gap between rhetoric and reality about the role of the coroner as the ombudsman for the dead. Moore's important work fills a serious knowledge gap about coroners' ancient role in advancing riders/recommendations and provides a basis for informed discussion about international coronial law reform and enhanced inquest practice.' -- Professor Ian Freckelton QC, University of Melbourne and Monash University, Australia
'Dr Moore's comprehensive book closes a gap in our knowledge about how coroners' recommendations are generated, presented, received and implemented. The research speaks valuable volumes about the relationship between coroners and the societies they serve. By situating the data within a global and historical context, this book covers everything that is essential to understanding coroners' systems.' -- Dr John D Rutherford, Director of Forensic Pathology, Northern Territory, Australia
'This is a fascinating book for anyone interested in the work of coroners. They are often ignored by academics and politicians, but this book shows how coroners can have a crucial role in promoting public health and saving lives. This book could revolutionise the way the work of coroners is understood.' -- Professor Jonathan Herring, University of Oxford, UK
