In This Timeless Time: Living and Dying on Death Row in America
In this stark and powerful book, 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. They document the capriciousness of capital punishment and capture the day-to-day experiences of Death Row inmates in the official "nonperiod" between sentencing and execution. Included is a DVD of Jackson and Christian's 1979 documentary film, Death Row. It was during fieldwork for the film that the authors took the photos and conducted the interviews in this book.
