Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens believed in capital punishment at one time; he does not support the death penalty today. And, in an article published in the December 23, 2010, issue of the New York Review of Books (available now online), entitled “On the Death Sentence,” Justice Stevens tells us why.

What John Paul Stevens has written is a review of a book, of course. He’s providing his opinion on the merits of David Garland’s new work, Peculiar Institution: America’s Death Penalty in an Age of Abolition (Belknap Press/Harvard University Press, 417 pp., $35.00). It is the New York Review of Books and Stevens’ commentary on the death penalty necessarily parallels his analysis of Garland’s contribution and its merits.
