Capital Punishment: a Balanced Examination, is a balanced and comprehensive overview of capital punishment. It also probes the constitutional implications of its implementation in America, and ponders some of the hard questions concerning its applications, such as how long capital appeals take. Mandery's examination of capital punishment requires the reader to think about some basic philosophical questions, such as would you ever kill? Each chapter begins with a primer of the issue at hand, followed by the data and critical documents necessary to make an educated assessment, and ending with essays offering differing viewpoints by some of the best minds in the country, including Stephen Nathanson, Hugo Adam Bedau, Michael Radelet, Scott Turow, Carol and Jordan Steiker, and Franklin Zimring.
