Abstract

In the course of American history, nearly 15 000 people have been executed under civil authority. Five issues are examined here: the attributes of persons executed and the historical geography of capital punishment, by eras; the relationship between race and execution; recent trends in the geography of capital punishment; the relationship between rates of homicide and rates of execution; and inter-state variation in the application of capital punishment
