Abstract

- Much written on capital punishment in America, but very little research on the persons serving these death sentences - Initial results from survey of more than 3,200 death row prisoners in the U.S. and material from a "behind-the-scenes" personal narrative from a death row prisoner in South Carolina. - Qualitative personal reflections (“life lessons”) from prisoners and a quantitative examination of coping mechanisms they use to deal with living and dying on death row
