From the Publisher"As with any of Hugo Adam Bedau's works, Killing as Punishment is extremely well written and thought provoking."
--Criminal Justice Review
"Hugo Bedau . . . has written widely on the death penalty. The first five chapters of his book "explore in detail a variety of factual issues raised by the death penalty," . . . The last four chapters are concerned with constitutional and ethical issues. Here the author argues that the Supreme Court's arguments are not conclusive; many moral arguments used by opponents of the death penalty are less conclusive than their users believe; and there are reasons favoring the abolition of the death penalty even for the worst murders."--Theology Digest
