This reference book provides comprehensive coverage of legal executions performed in the state of California from 1851 (when the Criminal Practices Act first authorized executions) until the present. It includes all cases in which legal processes appear to have been observed and the resulting execution was carried out by an authorized representative of the county or state. Entries are organized by year of execution and contain the felon's name, any known aliases, race, age at death and a detailed narrative of the crime that resulted in capital punishment. Race and age of victims are provided when available--a feature unique to this volume.
