Light shelf wear. Partially removed bookplate on front free endpaper. Jacket shows rubbing to front and rear panels. A re-examination of the Chessman case. Caryl Chessman was executed in San Quentin's gas chamber in 1960 for a crime spree in 1948 that included armed robbery and rape, but not murder. In 1974, the Supreme Court banned discriminatory imposition of the death penalty. This book examines the Chessman case and a bigger picture of the injustices of administration of capital punishment is subjected to arbitrary processes.
