BOOKS: "The Death Penalty In a Nutshell"

The fourth and latest edition of Victor Streib's "The Death Penalty in a Nutshell" is now available.  The book discusses substantive and procedural law of capital cases, along with relevant history, jurisprudence and constitutional law. Streib also addresses international issues, the complex role of defense counsel, systemic bias, and execution of the innocent. The new edition also provides analysis of emerging trends in the death penalty: fewer states have the death penalty on the books, even fewer capital offenders are being sentenced to death, and fewer yet are being executed.
