Notes

First edition. De la peine de mort was the Belgian journalist and prison reformer's first book, written when he was twenty-three years old. Ducpétiaux earned himself a name and an official position as inspector general of prisons on the strength of this passionate and ambitious plea for the abolition of capital punishment. He argued that the alternative to capital punishment was a prison system centred on the improvement of the prisoner.
