"Stack . . . takes readers into the lives of 18 inmates who were executed despite persistent doubts about their guilt and consistent evidence to prove innocence."--Colman McCarthy, National Catholic Reporter--Colman McCarthy "National Catholic Reporter "
"In addition to revealing that, in all likelihood, the United States has executed innocent men, Grave Injustice exposes the fundamental defects in capital punishment that produce such fatal mistakes. By focusing on these particular cases, the book brings to vivid life the two basic arguments for abolition--that the death penalty affects, and is carried out by, real flawed human beings, and that an irreversible punishment has no place in an imperfect system."--Brian Evans, Campaigner for Amnesty International USA's Death Penalty Abolition Campaign--Brian Evans
"Professor Stack has written a smart and engaging book on capital punishment. Using the unforgettable stories of real people, he drives home the many ways in which the death penalty system is broken in the United States. He then inspires us with examples of six very different people who have turned hope and vision into reality, tragedy into triumph, and forever changed the landscape of the capital punishment debate."--Diann Rust-Tierney, Executive Director of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty--Diann Rust-Tierney
"Richard Stack's book Grave Injustice is the tombstone for the death penalty."--Kirk Noble Bloodsworth, Advocacy Director for Witness to Innocence and the first death row inmate exonerated by DNA--Kirk Noble Bloodsworth
