Authors take a neutral stance to explain the confusion with regards to US capital punishment. At the time of publication, there was high support for the death penalty, indifference to having it carried out, and discomfort with actual executions. I'd be interested to read a more up-to-date version of the findings included in this book. It was interesting to learn about the different aspects, such as victim's families, wardens, attorneys, governors, jurors, etc.
