About the Author

Fiona Leverick is Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Aberdeen


`One of the strengths of Fiona Leverick's book on killing and self-defense is that it is a broad, comparative analysis of the law across a variety of jurisdictions, which sheds light on specific problems in particular legal systems. A second strength is that it recognizes the need for a general theory of self-defense based on the first principles, and that this needs to be located in an understanding of the law's structure.' Alan Norrie, New Criminal Law Review Volume 12, No.2, Spring 2009
