Opinions Throughout History: Voters' Rights
This volume tackles not only the topic of voter suppression, but how public opinion influenced action on voters' rights, from the founding of the country, when most states limited the right to vote to property-owning males, to the establishment in 2017 of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, and beyond, to how voter suppression efforts affected the 2018 elections.

Drawing from the popular press, key legislative and court battles, social activism and opinion polls, content in this edition follows the evolution of public opinion on voters' rights, including: how the vote was granted to minorities; Jim Crow laws (i.e. poll taxes and literacy tests); Voting Rights Act of 1965 and subsequent relevant Supreme Court decisions; voter ID laws; voter fraud; election interference; and specific individual state actions.

Few subjects are more controversial than capital punishment– an issue that has forced Americans, and people around the world, to confront fundamental questions about morality and the role of the state.

This volume of  Opinions Throughout History  looks at the evolution of this debate within the context of major events in the history of American criminal justice, from the nation’s first execution, in the famed Jamestown Colony of Virginia, to the cells of America’s modern “death rows” in 2018, where more than 2,700 people await state execution.

Tracing this history through the courts, the legislature, and the academic, religious, and popular debates that have surrounded the issue, this volume will reveal how American ideas about execution have evolved and continue to change as the nation moves deeper into the new century.
Each chapter includes a valuable introduction and conclusion, a bulleted list of topics covered, a reprint of a particularly significant primary or secondary source document, detailed analysis and commentary of that document, images and photographs, and discussion questions.
