  • About the Wangers.
The bibliography concentrates on the death penalty's nature, history, operation, effects, psychology, desirability, and compatibility with religious and moral precepts. Part I contains descriptions and annotations of more than 2,800 books, pamphlets and important ephemera, mostly from the late 18th to the 20th centuries. Other parts list files, electronic media, graphics, and artifacts. Also included are finding lists, comprehensive search lists (references to 97 names and subjects pertaining to capital punishment), and a general index. The collection itself is located in the National Death Penalty Archives at SUNY Albany, where it may be used for research. This research will be aided by two numbers which have been added to these annotations. They are the unique item number of each item (which is preceded by a pound sign) and the number of the archival box at Albany in which the item is located (which is preceded by a percent sign).-- Publisher.

Michigan is the only state in the country that has a death penalty prohibition in its constitution -- Eugene G. Wanger's compelling arguments against capital punishment is a large reason it is there. The forty pieces in this volume are writings created or used by the author, who penned the prohibition clause, during his fifty years as a death penalty abolitionist. His extraordinary background in forensics, law, and political activity as constitutional convention delegate and co-chairman of the Michigan Committee Against Capital Punishment has produced a remarkable collection. It is not only a fifty-year history of the anti–death penalty argument in America, it also is a detailed and challenging example of how the argument against capital punishment may be successfully made.
