- Interview: Clive Stafford Smith author of Injustice: Life and Death in the Courtrooms of America;
But the bottom line is that this is how America administers the law when a human life is at stake. The blurb calls Stafford Smith a "true hero", and he probably is.
Not only for his work on death row, but for what he went on to do for those imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay. But the death penalty has become a theme whereby Britain can feel good about itself, for all the special relationship with America.
Less cogent, therefore, is the way Stafford Smith becomes the darling of the British liberal-legal aristocracy and their friends in the theatre, lining up on the back cover to praise him. Join the dots: these are the people who surrounded themselves with Tony Blair et al: America's and Guantanamo Bay's best British friend.

From this starting point, and alongside personal anecdotes, the author goes on to explore the bureaucracy and corruption of the US legal system, where the death penalty is inextricably bound to the wealth of the defendant. The book provides a study of how innocence and guilt, and life and death, can be overshadowed by regulations, public opinion and financial concerns. E: subscriptions globallegalpost.
