"...a very complete work...very well written.

This work has a style of writing that very quickly captures the attention of the reader and holds it."--William E. Kelly/Auburn University "The fact that one of the authors--Lane Nelson--is a former death row inmate gives the text a credibility and perspective that is unique in sociology and criminal justice...offer the facts and perspectives from the inside in an easily accessible manner"--Charles Crawford/Western Michigan University
