Summary
A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice'from 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 didn't commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship'and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever. Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer's coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice. Praise for Just Mercy "Words such as important and compelling may have lost their force through overuse, but to read this book is to feel that they have been restored, along with one's hopes for humanity."'Tracy Kidder "Bryan Stevenson is America's young Nelson Mandela'a brilliant lawyer fighting with courage and conviction to guarantee justice for all."'Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate From the Hardcover edition
