A handbook on hanging : being a short introduction to the fine art of execution ... by Charles Duff( Book )

71 editions published between 1928 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Handbook on Hanging is a satiric tribute to that unappreciated mainstay of civilisation: the hangman. With barbed wit, Charles Duff not only writes of hanging, but also of electrocution, decapitation and gassing; of innocent men executed and of executions botched; of bloodlust mobs and the political expedients of the great. A classic satire, admired by Berthold Brecht and Dylan Thomas, Duff's polemic makes it clear that whatever else capital punishment may be said to be - justice, vengeance, a deterrent - it is certainly killing."--Back cover
