Reflections on capital clemency petitions
Last month, as detailed here, I participated in a workshop at Harvard Law School designed to culminate in a book to be published by NYU Press in late 2007. The book brings together a diverse group of authors addressing the topic that will be the title of the work, "When Law Fails: Making Sense of Miscarriages of Justice."
Though I won't have my draft chapter ready for prime time until next month, Austin Sarat has sent along his chapter and has allowed me to post it here. His chapter is entitled "Memorializing Miscarriages of Justice: Clemency Petitions in the Killing State," and can be downloaded below.

This is awesome. You'll want to know there is a "typo" : "onself" in quote of Natalie Z Davis in the opening page(s) must be "oneself" (I'm certain the editors would have caught this but I pass this to you in the spirit of excellence and not (nasty) pejorative criticism; there is my small contribution, for now) Z.
