Publisher: Northeastern University Press

Description:
Nationwide surveys indicate that the number of Americans who favor the death penalty is declining.

This landmark study is the first to examine the history and motivations of those jurisdictions that abolished capital punishment and have resisted the move to reinstate death penalty statutes.
