America's death penalty

Between past and present

David Garland, Randall McGowen, Michael Meranze

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    "If I were asked to recommend a single book that puts the vexed and emotionally charged question of the death penalty into an intelligible historical and contemporary political perspective it would be this one. The introduction sets the stage beautifully and the essays that follow allow readers to come at the problem from a variety of mutually reinforcing perspectives. It is a model for intellectually rigorous scholarship on a morally exigent matter."
