A cutting edge look at the state of the death penalty in America, from the point of view of a judge, a district sttorney, two defense lawyers and the two philosophers.

Making Mortal Choices by Hugo Adam Bedau Making Mortal Choices, Hardback (February 1997)

This text examines the usefulness of "casuistry", or "the method of cases" in arriving at moral decisions. It seeks to teach something about how we actually reason concerning life and death situations, and how we ought to reason if we wish both to be consistent and properly respect human life.

An assessment of both classical and current philosophical thought concerning the issue of civil disobedience. Drawing upon the essays of such contemporary thinkers as Rawls, Raz and Singer, this text aims to provide the basic material required for debate on the nature of civil disorder.
