The author clarifies that the rituals are of recent origin starting in the middle of the 19th Century. The middle class was first coming in to its and sought to demonstrate a moral superiority over the lower classes by distinguishing themselves from the "common mob". To charm to this set of voters Governments started trying out more "painless" methods of killing (none work). Other cosmetic touches including doing away with "public" executions, forbidding pictures or any type of other method of recording the barbarity and putting the killing behind prison wall space were all designed to take the "heat off the official killers, and turn the scrutiny, not on the killing itself but rather on the process, the crime details and the imagined "retributive" benefits for the execution takes place.
As Mr. Sarat and his team of scientists show the State has a stake (pardon the expression) in these sanctified killings. Politicians fall over one another to demonstrate that they are "tough" on crime and criminals. But the key question that Sarat and his guys wanted answered was whether an execution benefitted the penalty proponents or their opposition. Until we finish state sanctioned eradicating the question wii remain unanswered., Very informative and in some instances shockingly gruesome!, A gripping narrative in the mind out of meticulous research. Once I started this book, I could not put it down., Merely slow and boring., Despite the fact that a lttle bit dry in some instances, descriptions of horrible executions and desperate criminals literally fighting their captives to stave off their deaths were at once chilling and sobering. This text also did a fair job of describing the miserable childhoods and legal troubles of those who succumbed. Reading about a prisoner's violent offences and seeing his mugshot on TV or in the paper elicits little sympathy for the aches and pains they suffered during their executions, but reading accounts of some of the condemneds' abuse (including one man who suffered such severe brain damage after shooting both a policeman and himself in their head, whereupon he suffered severe mental breakdown and could not have comprehended either why he was in jail or why this individual would be executed) was an low-power.... to say the least., Such an interesting and informative publication. Great writing and really great info!, Great!, This book raises some really important questions about the loss of life penalty and its meaning in a civilized first world country. Sarat draws from historical cases and philosophical texts on energy, justice, and sovereignty to problematize the moral and ethical conditions for the state killing its own. In presenting these instances, Sarat does a good job of trying to remain objective and good, though the questions this individual asks somewhat allude to his position--a position I personally agree with. This publication is clearly written and accessible without compromising the complexity of the problems being addressed. A delightful read.
