Paperback. What's your response to the increasing number of cruel and apparently pointless murders - often of people who were merely in the wrong place at the wrong time? The author, an experienced lawyer, argues that murder has become more brutal, more random and more common, and the punishment no longer fits the crime. He examines arguments against capital punishment, considers the alternatives and looks at why the death penalty has failed in America, when it worked for many years in Britain. The author has made his stand on this contentious issue, presenting his own case for capital punishment. He does not pretend that he is presenting a balanced view. He argues that humanely administered, with safeguards against mistakes, capital punishment may provide the answer to the escalating murder rate that 'present' policies do not. With List of Countries that do not use the death penalty, List of Countries that do use the death penalty + Bibliog. 144pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
