This book is good for law students or criminal justice professionals who are studing the death penalty. This book does not explain why the death penalty is not moral, wise, or effective. It is not to tell why such a horrible thing is justice either. It's simply to explain what the death penalty is and how it works. The author does this by laying out the whole process from the history and evolution to the clemency and execution.
