The Contradictions of American Capital Punishment

By Franklin E. Zimring | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

THIS VENTURE needed and received help from a staggering variety of people. Dedi Felman of Oxford University Press served as the agent provocateur of this project. Financial support came from the Boalt Hall Fund and the Criminal Justice Research Program of the Earl Warren Legal Institute. The principal research assistants were Monica Swanson and Tom Clifford. Amanda Packel, the Young Scholar in the Institute during 2002, helped to rehabilitate the book's references and edit the text. Toni Mendicino supervised the preparation of the manuscript. As the project encountered different needs in subfields of social science, I benefited from the wisdom of many colleagues. Robert Kagan and Jack Citron were guides to the political science of trust in government. Phoebe Ellsworth, Sam Gross, Merrill Shanks, David Sheaves, Tom Smith, Lois Timms-Ferrara, and Patricia Vanderwald provided help in the many adventures I had with survey research. Lawrence Friedman, Mark Leff, Harry Scheiber, and Tony Freyer provided historical guidance.

Several colleagues provided critical readings of the entire manuscript: Dedi Felman, Lawrence Friedman, David Garland, Sam Kamin, Deborah Leff, Mark Leff, and Robert Weisberg all read versions of the book and each provided important help in its improvement. Cristina de Maglie, José Luis Díez Ripollés, Jeffrey Fagan, Roger Hood, David Johnson, Michael Laurence, James Liebman, Norval Morris, and Eric Prokosch read and reacted to pieces of the manuscript as it was being written.
