About the Author:

Welsh S. White is Professor of Law at the University of Pittsburgh.

Review:

"A unique and profoundly important contribution to the literature on the death penalty. White allows the leading capital defense attorneys to speak in their own voices. His work reveals a new source of arbitrariness in the death system - whether the penalty is imposed turns more on who is your lawyer than on how evil was your deed or your character.... This is vivid, gripping stuff." - Andrew Taslitz, Professor of Law, Howard University"
