Anyhow the beginnings of science in crime from a political appointee to a more professional standing by 1918, although the battle to detect poisoners was begging to be tackled in europe as well.

The alcohol chapters are the best for the complicity between religious people and government in kill people during prohibition (my blog) which is a new angle to love thy neighbour.with state sponsored killing so these nice ‘religious’ people are not that although there love of children (my blog) is also noteworthy.

An interesting if us centriic look at the area. 5/5 bananas
