1 Radelet, Michael L., Hugo Adam Bedau, and Constance E. Putnam In Spite of Innocence: Erroneous Convictions in Capital Cases [*SIGNED*]
Boston Northeastern University Pr. (c.1992) 1-55553-142-3 / 9781555531423 2nd printing Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dj 
[nice tight copy, minor handling wear; jacket has slight wear at extremities, a couple of small tears at corners]. SIGNED by all three authors, next to their names on the title page, with a brief inscription ("For ________ / Keep the faith!") added. " Few errors made by a government can compare with the horror of executing an innocent person. But the ordeal of victims of judicial error is not measured only by whether they are executed. This sobering book tells the personal stories of over 400 innocent Americans convicted of capital crimes. Some were actually executed; most suffered years of incarceration, many on death row. The volume confronts the reader with how easily safeguards against mistaken convictions can fail. In showing that ordinary citizens, in spite of their innocence, can become trapped in the machinery of justice--even sentenced to die--the authors deliver a strong indictment against capital punishment." Obviously a book that G.W. Bush never bothered to crack open (which does not, of course, make it in any way unique). Signed by All Authors
