"These essays go far beyond the obvious and offer much of interest both for those with a particular interest in the death penalty and for those who seek to understand and to ameliorate our country's shameful legacy of racial inequality. This is the rare book that will be helpful to the student, the scholar, and the activist alike." - Carol Steiker, Harvard Law School"
