Furman v. Georgia: The Death Penalty and the Constitution by Burt M. Henson, Ross R. Oln

In Furman v. Georgia (1972), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the imposition of the death penalty, as then applied, was cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the Constitution. This book provides an engaging narrative of this important case, its personalities, and the social issues it embraces. It also examines the effects of the Court's decision on the individuals involved and on American society.
