It is demonstrated that a spin-rotation coupling term only appears in the Hamiltonian of a Dirac particle if the rotating frame obeys the rules of Fermi-Walker transport. This is illustrated by examples in Minkowski space and the paper concludes with some speculations about spin-rotation coupling in Kerr space-time.
