This text is a frank and unsettling look at the consequences of the death penalty in the United States. The author takes the reader on a compelling, step-by-step journey through the world of American executions, from the prisoners who spend years on death row to the prison staff who guard the condemned and the people who are executioners. Utilizing both ethnographic and quantitative research, this book creates a dramatic presentation of all sides of this controversial topic..
