520    The crime of manslaughter exists as a 'catch-all offence' 
       to punish those who are blameworthy in causing the death 
       of another but whose culpability falls short of that 
       required for murder. Manslaughter is an extremely broad 
       offence and it has a difficult task in ensuring that all 
       those who warrant punishment for 'non-aggressive' deaths 
       are convicted. Simultaneously, it should not be too broad 
       in covering those who do not warrant punishment for such 
       deaths. There is little consistency in whether a 
       particular dangerous activity leads to liability for a 
       specific offence or for the generic offence of 
       manslaughter when death is caused. This book examines the 
       current law and includes a variety of perspectives on the 
       subject with chapters on specific modes of killing as well
       as issues that permeate all areas. The first half of the 
       book deals with issues such as how any special offences 
       for non-aggressive death should relate to a hierarchy of 
       homicide offences. The second half deals with issues 
       specific to different activities, which may or may not 
       justify the creation of specific homicide offences. The 
       book includes a comparative chapter on Australian law
