The death penalty has inspired controversy for centuries. Raising questions regarding capital punishment rather than answering them, Questioning Capital Punishment offers the footing needed to allow for more informed consideration and analysis of these controversies. Acker edits judicial decisions that have addressed constitutional challenges to capital punishment and its administration in the United States and uses complementary materials to offer historical, empirical, and normative perspectives about death penalty policies and practices. This book is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and graduate classes in criminal justice.(2012) aThe Geography of the Death Penalty and Its Ramifications, a 92 Boston University Law Review227 Smith, ... andthe Death Penalty, a58 Stanford LawReview751 Steiker, Carol S. aamp; Jordan M.
