This book addresses one of the most controversial issues in the criminal justice system today--the death penalty. Paternoster et al. present a balanced perspective that focuses on both the arguments for and against capital punishment.

Topics include:

* The history of the death penalty in the United States, from the 1600s to today
* The changing nature of the death penalty--changes in the types of crimes that warranted the penalty, the procedures employed to put capital offenders on trial, and the methods used to impose death
* Constitutional/legal issues surrounding the death penalty
* The influence of race on the administration of the death penalty, both in the past and in the present
* Justifications for and against the death penalty (retribution, cost, public safety, and religious arguments)
* Questions about the execution of innocents, exonerated capital offenders, and flaws in the operation of the death penalty
* Public opinion and the death penalty
* The death penalty and international law and practice
* The future of the death penalty in America
