What is capital punishment? Where is capital punishment used? Which crimes are punished with the death penalty? This title looks at how and where the death penalty has been used throughout history up to the present day, and examines the methods used to kill people who have been condemned to death. The book then explores the arguments made by both sides in the debate and considers issues such as the execution of people who are later proved innocent. Finally, you can find out how capital punishment could affect you and learn more about the issues involved.
