The death of innocents : an eyewitness account of wrongful executions
Prejean, Helen2005
Books
Review: Sister Helen Prejean traces the historical underpinnings of executions in the United States, demonstrating that it is no accident that over 80 percent of executions in the past twenty-five years have been carried out in the former slave states. She also raises profound constitutional questions about an appeals system that decides most death cases on procedural grounds without ever examining their merits.
