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.
