The essays in Murder and Its Consequences span several periods in the history of capital punishment in America and the professional career of Leigh Bienen, a leading researcher on the death penalty. "A Good Murder" describes the subtle relationship between high-profile murders and the death penalty, while "The Proportionality Review of Capital Cases" places the well-known study of proportionality in New Jersey within a nationwide context. "Anomalies" suggests that the arcane protocols written for lethal injection have little to do with insuring humane executions, but rather are concerned with protecting the sensibilities of witnesses and the liability of corrections officials. Other essays address the groundbreaking developments surrounding the death penalty in Illinois, and take a retrospective look at the evolution of her own and the country's thinking about this complex, divisive topic.
