Victor Streib. Death Penalty in a Nutshell. 4th ed. West, 2013.

KF9227.C2S772 2013

 

Now in its fourth edition, Death Penalty in a Nutshell presents the substantive and procedural law of capital cases, along with its relevant history, jurisprudence and constitutional applications. The book also addresses international issues, the complex role of defense counsel, the risk of systemic bias, and the potential execution of innocent defendants. This new edition provides an analysis of emerging trends in the death penalty, including that fewer states have the death penalty on their books, fewer capital offenders are being sentenced to death, and fewer yet are being executed.
