Cruel and Unusual: The Supreme Court and Capital Punishment

True, gripping 1st-person account of how a small band of determined lawyers, in a 9-year campaign in courts and the public, abolished the death penalty in the U.S. Their plan was as bold as the attempt to land on the moon. And while the victory was as impermanent as man's presence on the moon, the personal tale resonates with readers (not just lawyers or students) today. New Foreword and Preface.
