'Flying in the Face of Criminalization, with its unique collection of case studies, gives aviation professionals an insight into the law of negligence and how it applies to their profession. The book is essential reading for aviation professionals as well as aviation authorities and judicial authorities that regulate their activities.' --Journal Luchtrecht (Dutch Aviation Law Journal) , Feb 2011
'The authors argue that criminal prosecution of individuals for omissions and negligent actions, as opposed to actions based on intent or wilfulness, which are the usual criminal standards, is chilling and potentially dangerous. What individual faced with possible criminal prosecution, especially in countries of questionable process, would voluntarily open up and tell "the whole truth"? Here, we are given many examples of problems with competing jurisdictions, evidence battles, incarceration of individuals and wrestling matches between agencies within a single nation and between nations. In short, it's a mess.' --Times Higher Education
