Abstract:     
This Special Feature contains the full text of the report we wrote for the American Law Institute that provided the scholarly background for the ALI’s eventual withdrawal of the death penalty provisions of the Model Penal Code. The report is exactly as it was submitted to the ALI, and it is preceded by an introduction providing some historical context regarding the ALI’s involvement with the death penalty and describing the report’s production and aftermath.
