Synopsis: Surveys the history of the death penalty, describes different methods of execution, and discusses the legal and ethical ramifications using case histories
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-9?This concise history of capital punishment discusses the many related legal and philosophical issues. The evenhanded, readable text is broken up with good-quality black-and-white photos and reproductions and quotations from pundits, politicians, criminologists, and commentators. Wolf uses a case-study method as he chronicles the background of several death-row inmates, emphasizing the different interpretations of "cruel and unusual" punishment. Unfortunately, the coverage is already dated; there is no mention of the Oklahoma City Bombing trial and Timothy McVeigh's subsequent conviction. Easier to read but less thorough than Gail Stewart's The Death Penalty (Greenhaven, 1997), this book offers students an accessible look at this high-interest subject.?Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA
