Softcover. 2nd printing. One of the founders of the field of criminology sums up a lifetime of work on the issue of capital punishment. He shows the fallacy of the arguments for the deterrent and retributive value of the death penalty. He argues cogently and passionately for the body of evidence showing that 'abolitionist' states suffer no more capital crime than 'retentionist' ones, and that retribution is neither swift, certain nor equitable. With Index. 190pp. trade size softcover. With signs of b/plate removal inside fr. cover, small split to head of sp./fr. cover, o/w Vg.
