Explores capital punishment in the context of morality, justice, public opinion and international relations. Is Europe hypocritical in abolishing the death penalty and not abortion? Is Iran justified in executing people under age 18? Is Japan's death penalty process too shrouded in secrecy to be fair? Discusses cultures in which capital punishment has popular support, and the impact of extradition treaties and international pressure on the use of the death penalty.
