Summary: "An eye-opening book, Executing Justice should awaken the conscience of all fair-minded people."Sister Helen Prejean, author Dead Man Walking "With clear and vivid prose, Executing Justice is an authoritative and gripping account of the tragic case of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Amnesty International welcomes this publication."Piers Bannister, International Secretariat of Amnesty International "Executing Justice lives up to its promotion as an insider account, revealing strategy differences and discussions of factual and legal issues." The Washington Post Book World "One of the most important books on race in America. A powerful indictment of a highly flawed criminal process, Dan Williams'' jewel of a book convinced me that Mumia Abu-Jamal is innocent."Martin Garbus, First Amendment lawyer "Dan Williams is a true warrior for justice, and in Executing Justice he gives us a passionate, compelling account of an extraordinary case that deserves attention from everyone who cares about justice in this country."Gerry L. Spence "Dan Williams cuts through the verbal warfare to illuminate the troubling issues in this polarizing death penalty case. Beautifully written, Executing Justice is a welcome antidote to the histrionics of the Mumia Abu-Jamal controversy."Alan M. Dershowitz, Professor, Harvard Law School, and author of The Genesis of Justice "History will judge our commitment to equal justice for all by how the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal is handled. In a sensitive and balanced account of the trial of Mumia Abu-Jamal and his struggle for justice, Dan Williams shows us why the machinery of death must not continue to grind away our most cherished values. Executing Justice is an important and eloquent exploration of a distinctly American tragedy."Rev. Jesse Jackson "I have no idea whether Mumia Abu-Jamal is innocent or guilty. What I know is that the process by which he was found guilty is deeply flawed."Salman Rushdie "Dan Williams offers a candid, eminently readable account of a tragic chapter in America''s legal history. This work shines a powerful light in a very dark place."Mike Farrell "Every generation should have a moral assignment, and one of ours must be justice for Mumia qlAbu-Jamal."Ossie Davis "Despite the deluge of books about the sensational murder case of activist-journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal, none is as comprehensive or as forthcoming about the tangle of legal maneuvers and missteps in his controversial trial as this one is. Williams, the death row inmate''s defense lawyer and chief case strategist, offers a slew of previously unrevealed details about the lengthy battle to appeal Abu-Jamal''s 1982 conviction for the murder of a Philadelphia policeman. After an impassioned foreword by E.L. Doctorow, the book embarks upon a relentless analysis of the facts of the case that has captured international attention and drawn widespread support. Williams attacks the Pennsylvania courts'' refusal to grant an appeal by systematically picking apart the testimony of the prosecution''s key witnesses a former prostitute, a young white man on probation and two eyewitnesses who could not positively identify Mumia as the shooter. Williams confronts what he sees as ''irregularities'' in the convicted prisoner''s supposed confession, as well as in the ballistics and medical evidence. His measured and detailed discussion also puts the case into the broader legal context of Philadelphia politics during the civil rights era and racial biases in death penalty litigation in America, pointing out shortcomings in the jury selection process, for example. Possibly most startling is Williams''s careful chronicle of Abu-Jamal''s trial and ensuing appeals, which provides a far more thorough view of the proceedings than previous accounts. While no one opposed to Mumia'' s radical beliefs will be completely swayed by this book''s findings, Williams''s terse and lengthy arg
