This book has very good information

by EliasMacris (WorldCat user published 2011-01-11) Very Good Permalink

this book has many good opinions that makes sense in some ways.how ever i do recommend this book to people that need to do research on the death penalty. i like this book because it gives different cases of the death penalty instead of focusing on just one case.
