Columbia University Press

Based on a comparative perspective, this chapter contrasts China’s practice of the death penalty with capital punishment in the Chinese past, with the practice of other Chinese societies (i.e., Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore), and with the practice of other communist nations (i.e., Vietnam, North Korea). Such comparisons highlight distinctive features of China’s practice and unique challenges for the abolition of China’s death penalty, as well as some potentials for accomplishing such a mission.

Keywords:   comparative perspective, death penalty practice in the Chinese past, reform measures, death penalty practice of other Chinese societies, death penalty practice of other communist nations, abolition
