Death Penalty in A NutshellBook - 2008
Covering both the substantive law and the procedural law of the death penalty, this title begins with the arguments for and against the death penalty and an explanation of its basic constitutional challenges and limitations. Major sections cover capital crimes and defenses, as well as trial level and post-trial procedural issues. Special topics such as race and gender bias and executing the innocent are included, as well as a section on international and foreign law issues. Current as of July 2008, this Nutshell serves both as supplemental reading for students in death penalty courses and as a concise, narrative explanation of death penalty law.
