YA-- An excellent introduction to the multifaceted problems posed by the death penalty. The Millers lay out the issues in easily understood language, and provide a range of examples which include a Vietnam vet, a mental retardee/handicapped person, and a juvenile. Each chapter discusses the particular aspects of the broader issue which affects that case. The Vietnam vet case study includes a biography of David Funchess, a description of his crime, an account of his stay on Death Row (including some poetry he wrote), and an account of reactions to his execution by one of his lawyers and relatives of his victims. Overview chapters, ``Is Justice Served?'' and ``Are Any Problems Solved?'' lead students to examine their own views. This is the kind of thought-provoking volume which elicits growth toward adult thinking in young adults.
