Editorial Reviews

Review

In this comprehensive, well-crafted book . . . Jackson and Christian build upon the photographs and interviews from death row in Texas that yielded their 1979 book and documentary Death Row (DVD included). Here, photos and text reveal inmate life, discuss capital punishment, and share the fate of each man: execution, a commuted sentence, parole, or after more than two decades, an innocent verdict. . . . [T]he book raises important questions about the judicial system and the practice of capital punishment in our society.--Publishers Weekly


A Publishers Weekly Top 10 Social Science Title


In This Timeless Time is as close to perfection as a publisher can produce.--The Federal Lawyer

All readers concerned about the U.S. prison system and capital punishment will benefit from this important work.--ForeWord


Jackson and Christian's book gives some of those men a face. Therein lays its beauty.--The Rag Blog


A uniquely powerful contribution to the literature on prisons, criminal justice, and capital punishment in the United States. . . . Not to be missed.--Journal of Southern History


The book deals in emotion magnificently. . . . A moving piece of photojournalism and a fitting argument against the death penalty.--Texas Books In Review


If opponents of the death penalty were to choose one book for their cause, this could well be it. . . . Jackson and Christian write in a direct, journalistic style, poignant and to the point. This book will appeal to those with a specific interest in criminal justice and the death penalty as well as curious casual readers.--Library Journal Starred Review


An unflinching commentary on the judicial system and the fates of the men they met on the Row. . . . They made a body of work no one else could.--Prison Photography blog

Review

In This Timeless Time is a cry of the heart . . . and should become the definitive book on the medieval cruelty of our Death Rows. Once read, none of us can turn our view away and say, 'We did not know.'--Michael Ratner, attorney and president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights

Although depressing reading, this is a masterful account of life in prison in general and on death row in particular. The inhumanity of our prison system for both prisoners and those who work in the prisons comes through clearly. I don't think hell could be worse than life on death row.
