5.0 out of 5 stars painstakingly well researched. 4 Dec 1999
By A Customer
As I was also trying to research this subject I am aware of the dearth of accurate information available and how hard it is to extrapolate.This book took a non judgemental approach to the task, the crimes, the perpetrators, and methodology all being given equal status.Overall he had covered every crime which led to an execution from days when records were scarecly kept through to the more contemporary 1960's with equal dilligence. Mr young has managed to unearth facts about scottish executions most people could not have thought of seeking out.Of it type this is an execellent scource of reference, which he makes no moral judgements as to the efficacy or otherwise of the ultimate penalty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on Executions 20 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am really pleased with the purchase of this book. If you are looking for executions they are listed by date, place and also it has an Alphabetic list of culprits at the back of the book.
