He examines the official investigations into sudden deaths, placing them within... the context of major events and societal changes. This remarkable assessment spans witness statements, suicide notes and medical records to provide new insights on prevention strategies.
A powerful and poignant analysis of the motives for suicide, set amidst the challenges of the twentieth century.
