Executed on a Technicality When David Dow took his first capital case, he supported the death penalty. He changed his position as the men on death row became real people to him, and as he came to witness the profound injustices they endured: from coerced confessions to disconcertingly incompetent lawyers; from racist juries and backward judges to a highly arbitrary death penalty system. It is these concrete accounts of the people Dow has known and represented that prove the death penalty is consistently unjust, and it's precisely this fundamental-and lethal-injustice, Dow argues, that should compel us to abandon the system altogether.

Review:

An honorably dispassionate and logical broadside against a shameful practice.
--Kirkus Reviews

"Dow reveals the dirty little secret of American death-penalty litigation: procedure trumps innocence . . . [His book] is insightful and full of the kinds of revelations that may lead readers to reconsider their stand on the death penalty."--Steve Mills, Chicago Tribune

"Dow's book leaves all else behind. It is powerful, direct, informative, and told in compelling human terms. He makes us see that the issue is not sentiment or retribution or even innocence. It is justice."--Anthony Lewis, Pulitzer Prize-winning former columnist for the New York Times

David R. Dow is professor of law at the University of Houston Law Center and an internationally recognized figure in the fight against the death penalty.
