As the Official Executioner for many years, following on from his father and uncle, Albert Pierrepoint carried out over 400 executions, more than any other executioner, and travelled extensively abroad teaching his methods. The fruit of his experience is the conclusion that capital punishment achieves nothing except revenge, and acts not at all as a deterrent. Paperback, pp208 + 8 plates.
