In the Shadow of Death: Restorative Justice and Death Row Families

By Elizabeth Beck / Oxford University Press / Sarah Britto / Arlene Andrews, on 1 January 2007

The stories of parents, siblings, children, and cousins chronicled in this book-vividly illustrate the precarious position family members of capital offenders occupy in the criminal justice system. They live in the shadow of death, crushed by trauma, grief, and helplessness. In this penetrating account of guilt and innocence, shame and triumph, devastating loss and ultimate redemption, the voices of these family members add a new dimension to debates about capital punishment and how communities can prevent and address crime.
