Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A contributing editor to the The Atlantic Monthly finds that American discussions of criminal justice and the death penalty-- including notions of accountability, victimhood, moral agency, and self-control--are driven by a volatile mix of fear, fury, and wishful thinking about simple solutions, and that rational knowledge has become irrelevant.
