商品簡介

作者簡介

Shining a light on the dark history of hangings in Canada.

Take a journey through notable cases in Canada‘s criminal justice history, featuring well-known and some less-well-known figures from the past. You'll meet Arthur Ellis, Canada’s most famous hangman, whose work outfit was a frock coat and striped trousers, often with a flower pinned to his lapel. And you will encounter other memorable characters, including the man who was hanged twice and the gun-toting bootlegger who was the only woman every executed in Alberta.

Drop Dead: A Horrible History of Hanging in Canada illustrates how trial, conviction, and punishment operated in Canada’s first century, and examines the relevance of capital punishment today. Along the way, learn disturbing facts about wrongful convictions as well as the mathematics and physics behind hangings, and meet the victims, murderers, convicts, and executioners.
Lorna Poplak is a writer, editor, and researcher. She has served on the Toronto Community Council of the Society for Technical Communication and on the board of the Canadian Society of Children‘s Authors, Illustrators and Performers (CANSCAIP). She lives in Toronto.
