In The Death Penalty in America: Current Controversies, Hugo Adam Bedau, one of our preeminent scholars on the subject, provides a comprehensive sourcebook on the death penalty, making the process of informed consideration not only possible but fascinating as well. No mere revision of the third edition of The Death Penalty in America--which the New York Times praised as qthe most complete, well-edited and comprehensive collection of readings on the pros and cons of the death penaltyq--this volume brings together an entirely new selection of 40 essays and includes updated statistical and research data, recent Supreme Court decisions, and the best current contributions to the debate over capital punishment.

Toward a More Just and Effective System of Review in State Death Penalty Cases, 40 Am. Counsel for the Poor 303.
