The Psychology of Waiting to Die
Edited by Hans Toch, James R. Acker, and Vincent Martin Bonventre
The extreme isolation and harsh conditions of death row, combined with the omnipresent fear of death, takes a severe psychological toll on death row inmates that is inhumane and unnecessary. This book presents a variety of scholarly perspectives from psychologists, legal professionals, and criminologists, as well as compelling personal accounts from prison administrators and actual death row inmates. Together, they offer unique insights into the systemic, physical, and moral conditions of death row as well as an urgent plea for criminal justice reform.
