The death penalty and Russia
Bowring, Bill (2010) The death penalty and Russia. In: Yorke, J. (ed.) The Right to Life and the Value of Life: Orientations in Law, Politics and Ethics. Surrey, UK: Ashgate, pp. 296-290. ISBN 9780754677611.
From book synopsis: This groundbreaking book is the first collection to investigate the law, political science and ethical perspectives collectively in relation to the right and value of life. Its contributions from international roster of scholars are organized around five themes: a theoretical positioning of life and death; War, armed conflict and detention; Death as punishment; Medical parameters for ending life; and medical policies for the preservation of life. In studying this issue in its contemporary contexts of "right" and "value," the volume fills the current scholarly lacuna in the general subject of the orientations of life. It presents a much-needed examination of key issues in a broad practical and theoretical context, and holds broad appeal for scholars, researchers, and students occupied with issues of war, armed conflict, the death penalty, and various contemporary medico-legal scenarios.
