MEDIA REVIEWS
"A Global History of Execution and the Criminal Corpse is a fascinating set of essays that explore not only the socio-political contexts of the death penalty, but also the fate of the condemned after their deaths. ... It will be of interest to scholars of the criminal law, punishment, state-society relations, and the cultural history of death and the body." (Michael Meranze, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books, clcjbooks.rutgers.edu, January, 2017)
