Two words that will spark a debate are Òcapital punishment.Ó It seems everyone has an opinion. Ron FridellÕs well-researched book, ÒCapital Punishment,Ó helps us understand this emotional issue. He presents an historical perspective, true criminal cases, and clear arguments of pro and con. The decision of support or opposition is ultimately up to the reader, who will leave this book better informed on both sides of the issue.
