Jody Lyneť Madeira. Killing McVeigh: the death penalty and the myth of closure. New York University Press, 2012.

KF224.M37M33 2012

 

On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh detonated a bomb that felled the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people. In 2001, an unprecedented 242 witnesses watched him die by lethal injection. In Killing McVeigh, Jody Lyneť Madeira uses the Oklahoma City bombing as a case study to explore how family members and other survivors come to terms with mass murder. As the fullest case study to date of the Oklahoma City Bombing survivorsí struggle for justice and the first-ever case study of closure, this book describes the profound human and institutional impacts of these labors to demonstrate the importance of understanding what closure really is before naively asserting it can or has been reached.

Jeremy Waldron. The harm in hate speech. Harvard University Press, 2012.

KF9345.W34 2012

 

For many, regulation of hate speech violates the First Amendment and damages a free society. Waldron rejects this view, and makes the case that hate speech should be regulated as part of a commitment to human dignity and to inclusion and respect for members of vulnerable minorities. Free-speech advocates speak of despising what racists say but defending to the death their right to say it. Waldron finds this emphasis on intellectual resilience misguided and points instead to the threat hate speech poses to the lives, dignity, and reputations of minority members. Finding support for his view among philosophers of the Enlightenment, Waldron examines the serious consequences of hateful speech.
