David Garland appears at conferences in Italy to mark Italian publication of his book on capital punishment

David GarlandDavid Garland, Arthur T. Vanderbilt Professor of Law and Professor of Sociology, has just completed visits to several Italian universities, each of which held conferences to celebrate the publication of the Italian edition of his book, Peculiar Institution: America's Death Penalty in an Age of Abolition. The Italian version was published last week by il Saggiatore, under the title, La Pena di Morte in America.

Garland spoke at the University of Ferrara, University of Florence, and University of Milano-Bicocca. In Ferrara, he also delivered a paper on criminology and legal history. The Milan conference, where Eva Cantarella, a Global Visiting Professor of Law at NYU Law was one of the commentators on the book, was broadcast by a national radio station (part in Italian, part in English).
