Summary
"This comprehensive volume helps readers understand the debate and issues surrounding the death penalty by presenting its history, significant court rulings, and opinions and arguments from supporters and detractors alike. The volume raises both the moral and practical questions inherent in the issue and examines how civilized societies have reacted to capital punishment's application in the past. Excerpts from related court rulings, documents and essays are also presented, as well as biographical sketches of individuals who have helped shape modern attitudes toward the law. An annotated list of resources and organizations is included to assist in more in-depth studies. This book promises no easy answers but provides solid, useful information that will serve as a foundation for research, decision-making, or simply an enhanced understanding of this critical subject."--Jacket
