 About the Book 

Legal Executions of 2010 is a meticulous examination of every execution (and the details surrounding the execution) carried out in a single year--and a thought-provoking exploration into the minds of 46 killers as each plays the role of predator,MoreLegal Executions of 2010 is a meticulous examination of every execution (and the details surrounding the execution) carried out in a single year--and a thought-provoking exploration into the minds of 46 killers as each plays the role of predator, quarry and condemned. The unsettling narratives begin with a murder on May 26, 1993, and end with an execution on December 16, 2010. The book chronicles 63 murders, 44 trials, countless appeals, two suicide attempts, 41 last meals, 33 final statements and 46 executions.Executions are rare in the United States. This book presents the compelling stories behind each of them, accounts often neglected in the mainstream media. Every person facing the executioner has a story, every killing is as unique as it is devastating. The death penalty remains in 32 states. Thinking about capital punishment is more than a philosophical debate about good and bad, right and wrong, or just desserts. The death penalty is about human beings and the impact of their conduct against and with one another.
