2144 An Eye for an Eye? The Morality of Punishing by Death, by Stephen Nathanson (read 24 Apr 1988) This is one of the best books on capital punishment I've ever read. The author is a professor of philosophy at Northeastern U. I really think it is excellent and wish I could get every legislator to read it. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847675610, Hardcover)

The death penalty issue has become the epitome of the unresolvable issue, the question which people answer on the basis of gut reactions rather than logical arguments. In the second edition of An Eye for an Eye? Stephen Nathanson evaluates arguments for and against the death penalty, and ultimately defends an abolitionist position to the controversial practice, including arguments that show how and why the dealth penalty is inconsistent with respect for life and a commitment to justice. A timely new postscript and an updated bibliography accompany the volume.
