   schema:reviewBody ""From governments that enact population-limiting legislation or commit wholesale neonaticide, to families who purposely allow a weak, infirm, or unfavorably gendered infant to perish rather than expend limited resources, neonaticide, infanticide, and filicide are practiced on every continent and by every level of cultural complexity." "This book examines the crime of neonaticide from all angles including historical, cultural, psychological, and legal. The book details child homicide in its many forms, such as shaken baby syndrome and Munchausen by Proxy as well as the differing circumstances involved in infanticide and filicide. Unlike many books on the subject, it investigates the behavior of the father - responsible in roughly 75 percent of these cases - whether aggressive, complicit, or merely absent, and his ultimate culpability under the law."--Jacket." ;
