The Geography of Executions

My latest piece over at Washington Monthly is on capital punishment's stark regional patterns. It is, of course, utilizing the American Nations framework.

This is the third analytical piece I've posted at the Monthly's Ten Miles Square blog since my feature on the geography of the Tea Party appeared in the magazine six weeks ago. The others looked at the regional patterns of the Occupy movement, the results of the 2011 off-year elections, and the implications of Mormonism's Yankee roots for Mitt Romney's candidacy and perhaps even the long-term political alignment of Utah.

  2. @Xach - I did, indeed. Thanks for pointing out the error, which I've fixed.
