Few issues are as controversial as the death penalty. The cartoonists featured in this collection present their views on the morality of the death penalty, its deterrent effect, and the fairness of its administration.
"Editor Mary Williams presents a representative and diverse collection of cartoons with commentary on a range of themes in this engaging series aimed at students."
-- Conscience (Spring 2003)
"Humor is a powerful weapon for opening up discussion, and the Opposing Viewpoints series has always included small cartoons that add wry perspectives. Lots of detailed, serious commentary frames the cartoons, and each volume begins with a long introduction that includes a history of the debate as well as a summary of court decisions and current viewpoints."
