About the book:

The third edition of Capital Punishment and the Judicial Process includes all major Supreme Court cases, including the landmark decisions in Roper v. Simmons, Atkins v. Virginia and Ring v. Arizona. With the media's attention continually focused on capital punishment cases, the death penalty remains a lightning-rod issue. Coyne and Entzeroth focus on Eighth Amendment and Fourteen Amendment challenges to the death penalty, and provide comprehensive treatment of post-conviction and federal habeas corpus issues. Capital Punishment and the Judicial Process provides a historical overview of the death penalty and devotes an entire chapter to bedrock issues including deterrence, retribution, brutalization and innocence. A separate chapter examines the impact of race, gender and sexual orientation in capital cases. Coyne and Entzeroth have updated their materials to include all relevant recent developments in the field, including the growing importance of international law, the resumption of federal executions, the results of the capital trial of terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui and the American Bar Association's call for a moratorium on executions. In a methodical and comprehensive fashion, Capital Punishment and the Judicial Process explores death eligibility, jury selection, aggravating and mitigating factors, the right to effective counsel, prosecutorial misconduct, the use of psychiatric experts, stays of execution, state and federal habeas procedures, clemency and methods of execution.
