People have been thinking, writing, speaking, arguing and legislating about the death penalty since humans first recorded their ideas with chisel and stone. This anthology includes 151 classic writings about the death penalty, covering a span of almost 4,000 years. The entries were selected to illustrate the diversity of thought about capital punishment, to provide a resource for tracing its intellectual history, and to provide surprisingly fresh ideas that can inform our contemporary conversations.
