The UNC Law Library has several books and resources on the death penalty. You can explore the subject in a new collection on HeinOnline or through print books housed in the Law Library stacks.


HeinOnline now features the History of Capital Punishment online collection. This resource includes the Eugene G. Wanger and Marilyn M. Wanger Death Penalty Collection: A Descriptive Bibliography, which represents more than 50 years of expert and extensive research on this subject. The bibliography contains a wide range of materials on the death penalty documenting its history, efforts to abolish or reinstate the practice, its psychological impact, compatibility on religious, moral or ethical grounds, and its operation. It is an outstanding resource for any researcher looking for depth and breadth on the topic. Also included in the History of Capital Punishment collection are hundreds of additional related publications, such as hearings, trials, periodicals, and more.
