Since the United States reinstated the death penalty in 1976, eleven women have been put to death for murder. Each case involves a personal story with unique tragic elements. Yet common themes reflect how the criminal justice system defines crimes committed by women in a particular gendered context. Wretched Sisters offers an analysis of the legal and popular cultural circumstances that determine why a small number of women are sentenced to death, and provides an empathetic account of how these eleven came to be subjected to the ultimate punishment.

This classic text argues that crime control, rather than crime itself is the real danger for our future. Since the second edition was published in 1994, prison populations , especially in Russia and America, have grown at an increasingly rapid rate. This third edition is published to take account of these changes and draw attention to the scale of an escalating problem. It contains completely new chapters - one on 'penal geography', the other on 'the Russian case' - and has been extensively revised.

As a pastor to Death Row inmates across the South and as a powerful advocate appealing to prison wardens, lawyers, judges, and legislators, Joseph Ingle has come to some shocking conclusions about the United States, champion of human rights throughout the world. He began to recognize another aspect to US history: systematic oppression imposed by the very people who founded the country. After working with death-row inmates in the killing ground of the South, where he had lost over twenty people to the executioner since 1979, Rev. Ingle made his way to Harvard University on a Merrill Fellowship in 1991 where he began a twenty-year process of reading, writing and continued work with the condemned. Here, he began to comprehend what he had been experiencing in the United States, foremost advocate of democratic government and a champion of human rights throughout the world. He found it difficult to even face the contradictions he perceived. And he began to ask whether, in fact, we have to consider the government of our country in terms of tyranny.
