Hardback. A former governor of Ohio speaks out passionately and convincingly against the death penalty and for reform of the penal code. He meets head-on the argument for capital punishment - its effectiveness as deterrent to murder - and illustrates this fallacy dramatically through case histories, review of trials and historical reference. The author spells out in graphic detail, the cases in which he was involved personally - 6 in which men died, 6 in which men lived. Additional cases, including commentary on the Oswald and Ruby affair as well as the Sheppard case, convey to the reader the almost mandatory need for reform in the socio-legal system. 214pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Review copy with loosely inserted slip + a carbon copy of a review written by Daniel A. Poling, Editor of the 'Christian Herald', New York, dated September 21, 1965. With 3 different name insc. to fep. Vg. in sunned and sl. frayed G++ dw.
