Each book in this series offers all the statutes, legal opinions, and studies a student needs to structure a cohesive argument on a given controversial topic. Issues are presented from multiple points of view; sidebars cite law and opinions to aid in critical analysis; paratextual questions encourage reader engagement; and all sources are fully documented and grouped by the side of the argument. Explores the debates surrounding the death penalty: Is the state ever justified in taking a human life? How severe must a crime be to warrant the death penalty? Is capital punishment an effective deterrent to crime?
