"Sister Helen Prejean traces the historical underpinnings of executions in this country, 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." "To date, well over one hundred wrongfully convicted persons have been freed from death row. If constitutional protections - due process, assistance of counsel, and equal justice under law - are truly being respected, how is it possible that these people were convicted in the first place? And how can we accept a system so rife with error?"--BOOK JACKET
