Description

This is a comprehensive sourcebook on the death penalty in America. It follows up on, though is much more than a revision of, Bedau's Death Penalty in America, third edition (OUP, 1982). Virtually all the readings are new, and include updated statistical and research data, recent Supreme Court decisions, and major recent contributions to the debate over capital punishment.show more

Review quote

This volume is to some extent a handbook; but it is also more than that. The new essays are well worth reading./ Prof Nigel Walker, Institute of Criminology, Cambridge / New Law Journal, 26/02/99show more
