Carolyn Ramsey, Guest-Blogging:

I'm delighted to say that University of Colorado law professor Carolyn Ramsey will be guest-blogging this week, about the history of the criminal law's responses to intimate homicide. I invited Prof. Ramsey to do this after reading her Intimate Homicide: Gender and Crime Control, 1880-1920, 77 Univ. Colo. L. Rev. 101 (2006), which I found to be fascinating and eye-opening. I hope you folks find her work as interesting as I did.
