The Death Penalty: For and Against

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers (1997)

Louis P. Pojman
Oxford University (DPhil)
Two distinguished social and political philosophers take opposing positions in this highly engaging work. Louis P. Pojman justifies the practice of execution by appealing to the principle of retribution while Jeffrey Reiman argues that although the death penalty is a just punishment for murder, we are not morally obliged to execute murderers
