The death penalty in China : policy, practice, and reform by Bin Liang( )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China currently leads the world in death sentences and executions, making it a primary target for the global abolition movement. While the results have been subtle, anti-death penalty advocates are beginning to influence Chinese attitudes toward the practice, as well as law. Conducting an interdisciplinary and comparative study of China's death penalty as the country heads toward reform, this book explains what it took to advance reforms to limit death sentences and executions, while identifying the challenges that prevent more extensive progress. Featuring experts from Europe, Australia, Japan, China, and the United States, this collection follows changes in the theory and policy of China's death penalty from the Mao era (1949-1979) through the Deng era (1980-1997) up to the present day. Using empirical data, such as capital offender and offense profiles, temporal and regional variations in capital punishment, and the impact of social media on public opinion and reform, contributors relay both the particular character of China's death penalty practices and the incremental changes that indicate reform. They then compare the Chinese experience to other countries throughout Asia and the world, showing how change can be implemented even within a non-democratic and rigid political system, but also the dangers of pushing policies that society may not be ready to embrace"--Amazon.com
Crime, criminology, and public policy : essays in honour of Sir Leon Radzinowicz( Book )

17 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under the shadow of Nazi occupation, ordinary men and women leading apparently quiet lives as doctors, farmers, housewives, priests, and teachers engaged in spy thriller adventures to save the Allied airmen raining down among them. French and Belgian patriots, usually without aid or training, created elaborate escape lines that enabled thousands of Allied airmen to evade enemy capture. Known simply as "helpers," these men and women organized prison breakouts, seaside evacuations, and parachute drops as well as provided food, shelter, and traveling papers for the men in their care. All this was done amidst the constant threat of betrayal by a traitor or brutal arrest and interrogation by Gestapo agents." "To research these stories, Ottis hiked the Pyrenees and interviewed many of the surviving helpers and evaders. She tells of the extreme difficulty helpers had in avoiding Nazi infiltration by double agents; of their creativity in hiding evaders in their homes, sometimes in the midst of unexpected searches; and of their generosity in sharing their meager food supplies during wartime. Silent Heroes is filled with dashing heroes, dastardly villains, well-planned traps, and last-minute escapes. The sum of these stories reveals the unflagging spirit and courage of these men and women in the face of a war fought on a very personal level."--BOOK JACKET

Confronting capital punishment in Asia : human rights, politics and public opinion by Roger Hood( )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the strengthening focus worldwide on human rights, there has been a rapid increase in recent years in the number of countries that have completely abolished the death penalty. This is in recognition that it is a violation of the right to life and the right to be free from cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment. There has, simultaneously, been pressure on countries that still retain capital punishment to ensure that they at least apply the United Nations minimum human rights safeguards established to protect the rights of those facing the death penalty. This book shows that the majority of Asian countries have been particularly resistant to the abolitionist movement and tardy in accepting their responsibility to uphold the safeguards. The essays contained in this volume provide an in-depth analysis of changes in the scope and application of the death penalty in Asia with a focus on China, India, Japan, and Singapore.They explain the extent to which these nations still fail to accept capital punishment as a human rights issue, identify impediments to reform, and explore the prospects that Asian countries will eventually embrace the goal of worldwide abolition of capital punishment"--Unedited summary from book jacket
