Dustwrapper very slightly edgeworn, with short closed tear to bottom edge of lower panel, which is a little rubbed. Very good condition. "The social phenomenon of crime and punishment arouses greater interest today than ever before. Mounting attacks are being made by prominent South Africans on capital punishment in the Republic, which is said to have the highest execution rate in the world... In South Africa, quite a few articles have been written on the subject of penology and there have been important public pronouncements by leading citizens, but there are few books on the subject which bring out the peculiar problems of this country and how they fit in with generally accepted theories, and which describe the largely progressive, though sometimes contradictory, developments in our penal system. The author has made this part of her task, and her work should and will be read by many.".

Ten of South Africa's most baffling crime mysteries are revisited and provide the reader with a sense of the real human tragedies behind these haunting events.".
