""In This Timeless Time" presents images and words of condemned men who are otherwise abstractions and provides a compelling history of death row over the last thirty years. Nothing like this book exists, or could ever exist again. I could not recommend this book more strongly."--Billy Sothern, death penalty lawyer and author of "Down In New Orleans: Reflections from a Drowned City" ""In This Timeless Time" is as close to perfection as a publisher can produce."--"The Federal Lawyer" A "Publishers Weekly" Top 10 Social Science Title The book deals in emotion magnificently. . . . A moving piece of photojournalism and a fitting argument against the death penalty.--Texas Books In Review In this comprehensive, well-crafted book . . . Jackson and Christian build upon the photographs and interviews from death row in Texas that yielded their 1979 book and documentary Death Row (DVD included). Here, photos and text reveal inmate life, discuss capital punishment, and share the fate of each man: execution, a commuted sentence, parole, or after more than two decades, an innocent verdict. . . . [T]he book raises important questions about the judicial system and the practice of capital punishment in our society.--Publishers Weekly A Publishers Weekly Top 10 Social Science Title A uniquely powerful contribution to the literature on prisons, criminal justice, and capital punishment in the United States. . . . Not to be missed.--Journal of Southern History An unflinching commentary on the judicial system and the fates of the men they met on the Row. . . . They made a body of work no one else could.--Prison Photography blog In This Timeless Time is as close to perfection as a publisher can produce.--The Federal Lawyer All readers concerned about the U.S. prison system and capital punishment will benefit from this important work.--ForeWord Jackson and Christian's book gives some of those men a face. Therein lays its beauty.--The Rag Blog If opponents of the death penalty were to choose one book for their cause, this could well be it. . . . Jackson and Christian write in a direct, journalistic style, poignant and to the point. This book will appeal to those with a specific interest in criminal justice and the death penalty as well as curious casual readers.--Library Journal Starred Review A "Publishers Weekly" Top 10 Social Science Title "In This Timeless Time" is as close to perfection as a publisher can produce.--"The Federal Lawyer" "If opponents of the death penalty were to choose one book for their cause, this could well be it. . . .

Reseña del editor:

Through words and pictures and with the force of over thirty years of fieldwork behind them, Bruce Jackson and Diane Christian explore life on Death Row in Texas and in other states, as well as the convoluted and arbitrary judicial processes that populate all Death Rows. In chronicling the lives and deaths of these prisoners, Jackson and Christian document the capriciousness of capital punishment and capture the day-to-day experiences of Death Row inmates in the official ""nonperiod"" between sentencing and death. In the first section, ""Pictures,"" ninety-two photographs taken during their fieldwork for the book and documentary film Death Row illustrate life on cell block J in Ellis Unit of the Texas Department of Corrections. The second section, ""Words,"" further reveals the world of Death Row prisoners and offers an unflinching commentary on the judicial system and the fates of the men they met on the Row. The third section, ""Working,"" addresses the profound moral and ethical issues the authors have encountered throughout their careers documenting the Row. In this stark and powerful book, Jackson and Christian realise the enormous potential of interdisciplinary documentary work and aim to influence today's debate about the death penalty and the way it is applied.
