Some brief overview of book

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY TIME NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review The Washington Post The Seattle Times Kirkus Reviews A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justicefrom one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didnt commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanshipand transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyers coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice. Praise for Just Mercy "Just Mercy is every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so. .

. . It demonstrates, as powerfully as any book on criminal justice that Ive ever read, the extent to which brutality, unfairness, and racial bias continue to infect criminal law in the United States.

But at the same time that Stevenson tells an utterly damning story of deep-seated and widespread injustice, he also recounts instances of human compassion, understanding, mercy, and justice that offer hope. . .

. Just Mercy is a remarkable amalgam, at once a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields."David Cole, The New York Review of Books "A searing, moving and infuriating memoir . .

. Stevenson may, indeed, be Americas Mandela. For decades he has fought judges, prosecutors and police on behalf of those who are impoverished, black or both.

. . .

Injustice is easy not to notice when it affects people different from ourselves; that helps explain the obliviousness of our own generation to inequity today. We need to wake up. And that is why we need a Mandela in this country."Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times "Inspiring .

. . a work of style, substance and clarity . .

. Stevenson is not only a great lawyer, hes also a gifted writer and storyteller." The Washington Post "Unfairness in the justice system is a major theme of our age. .

. . This book brings new life to the story by placing it in two affecting contexts Stevensons life work and the deep strain of racial injustice in American life.

. . .

The book extols not his nobility but that of the cause, and reads like a call to action for all that remains to be done."Ted Conover, The New York Times Book Review "Not since Atticus Finch has a fearless and committed lawyer made such a difference in the American South. Though larger than life, Atticus exists only in fiction. Bryan Stevenson, however, is very much alive and doing Gods work fighting for the poor, the oppressed, the voiceless, the vulnerable, the outcast, and those with no hope.

Just Mercy is his inspiring and powerful story."John Grisham From the Hardcover edition.
