About this product
- DescriptionIn recent years the death penalty has sharply declined across Africa, but this trend belies actual public opinion and the retributivist sentiments held by political elites. This study explains capital punishment in Africa in terms of culturally specific notions of life and death as well as the colonial-era imposition of criminal and penal policy.
- Author BiographyAndrew Novak is an adjunct professor of criminology, law, and society at George Mason University, USA, where he teaches international and comparative criminal justice. He is also the author of The Global Decline of the Mandatory Death Penalty: Constitutional Jurisprudence and Legislative Reform in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean.
