Description: "How enviable a quiet death by lethal injection," wrote U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, in a concurring opinion that denied review of a Texas death penalty case. But is it quiet? Renewed and vigorous debate over the death penalty has recently erupted, especially given the potential for ineffective administration of the drugs traditionally used for lethal injections, and their limited availability as drug makers become unwilling to supply them. In Gruesome Spectacles: Botched Executions and America's Death Penalty, renowned legal scholar Austin Sarat describes just how unquiet death by execution can be. If we assume a death row prisoner is guilty, how can we be sure that we are fulfilling the Supreme Court's mandate to ensure that his execution is "the mere extinguishment of life?" Now in paperback with a new preface outlining the most recent information on the American death penalty debate, Gruesome Spectacles is a history of botched, mismanaged, and painful executions in the U.S. from 1890 2010. Using new research, Sarat traces the evolution of methods of execution that were employed during this time, and were meant to improve on the methods that went before, from hanging or firing squad to electrocution to gas and lethal injection. Even though each of these technologies was developed to "perfect" state killing by decreasing the chance of a cruel death, an estimated three percent of all American executions went awry in one way or another. Sarat recounts the gripping and truly gruesome stories of some of these deaths stories obscured by history and to some extent, the popular press.
