"Anyone who cares about capital punishment should read this compelling, lucid account of the obstacles defense attorneys face and the strategies they adopt." --John Parry, University of Pittsburgh School of Law "With its compelling narratives of cases, strategies, and ethical dilemmas, Litigating in the Shadow of Death is difficult to put down. . . . This pathbreaking book encapsulates the experience of the most respected capital defenders in America and shows how they save even the worst of the worst from execution. It also shows how sleeping and otherwise incompetent lawyers bring death sentences to their clients. Litigating in the Shadow of Death explores the lawyers' tasks at every stage of the criminal process--investigation, client interviewing, conferring with victims' families, plea bargaining, trial, appeal, and post-conviction proceedings." --Albert W. Alschuler, Julius Kreeger Professor of Law and Criminology, University of Chicago "A unique and profoundly important contribution to the literature on the death penalty. White allows the leading capital defense attorneys to speak in their own voices. His work reveals a new source of arbitrariness in the death system--whether the penalty is imposed turns more on who is your lawyer than on how evil was your deed or your character. Litigating in the Shadow of Death offers concrete guidelines for better lawyering, protection of the innocent, and understanding the artistry of the best capital attorneys. This is vivid, gripping stuff." --Andrew Taslitz, Professor of Law, Howard University "A most illuminating book by a splendid writer and an eminent critic of the capital punishment system." --Yale Kamisar, Professor of Law, University of San Diego "Welsh White has written another excellent book on the death penalty--this one on how defense attorneys in capital cases successfully prevent the state from executing their clients. Based on original research, Litigating in the Shadow of Death is informative and insightful. This is a book that all serious students of American capital punishment must read." --Richard Leo, University of California, Irvine Welsh S. White was Bessie McKee Walthour Endowed Chair and Professor of Law at the University of Pittsburgh.

Andaman and Nicobar Islands, popularly known as ‘Kala Pani’ comprise of 572 islands, only 36 being inhabited.The early history of these islands of exquisite beauty is shrouded in mystery. Occupied by East India Company towards the close of the 18th century, they were used by the British for a penal settlement after 1857. Prisoners sentenced to life imprisonment were kept in a cellular jail. The real inhabitants of these islands are, however, some aboriginal tribes like the Great Andamanese, the Onge, Jarawas, Sentinelese and Shompens, whose past is mysterious and future uncertain. The Japanese had made all preparations for the occupation of the islands a decade before actual occupation on 23rd March 1942. New hopes and desires of independence were enkindled in the minds of the islanders. However, the duration of this period of friendship was extremely short, and people were soon caught in a grip of terror, resulting in atrocities, round-ups and mass murders. Netaji's visit also could not improve the situation The nuclear attacks brought Japan to her knees and the Instrument of Surrender was signed at Port Blair on 9th October 1945. As a result of the war-crime courts, out of 16 accused, 6 were executed at Singapore and the rest were sentenced to various terms ranging from 7 to 25 years. The islands now enjoy the status of a union territory.

[Publisher's note: This written statement was penned over a 100 years ago.] The following was written nearly six years ago It was only after much hesitation and prayer, that, at the repeated requests of some esteemed Christians, and after a careful revision, I have resolved to commit these notes to print. I confide in the well-known forbearance of my dear fellow Christians in this country, as to the imperfections of expression. The twenty-third Psalm has been so interwoven with the whole of my Christian course (of more than 26 years), and our gracious Shepherd has, from this precious portion of His Pasture, whenever I turned to it, so often blessed my soul, that I could resist no longer the desire to communicate to others what He has been pleased to give to me. The dispensational side of our Psalm I have only occasionally touched upon, as the chief object of it is the feeding of the soul on Christ. Consequently even the great Christian principles of truth, foreshadowed and embedded in this Psalm, are considered, only as far as they concern the flock of God; for instance, the question of worship at the Lord's Table, where we feed upon His death, when "We sing of the Shepherd that died, That died for the sake of the flock." For, however important a place the Church, as such, may occupy at that blessed Table of our Lord, and in His counsels, yet this portion of divine truth would be out of place in our Psalm. May God keep us from growing into cool and enlightened churchmen, to the neglect of the pastoring of the flock, for whom the Good Shepherd died.

Discerning the difference between religion and spirituality provides uncertainty for even the most devoted believer. For a newborn Christian or non-believer, being tossed into the sea of confusion when it comes to the mysteries of God and the 'fleshy' church can be daunting enough to have anyone run the other way. Maybe you are confused by different religions or find hypocrisy in the church. Maybe you find your relationship with God leaves you feeling bored and lifeless, or the hype surrounding the church does not meet your needs. Whatever your reason for lacking a personal relationship with God, you can still learn the tools to strengthen, build, and mend a spiritual union with your Creator. While many straddle the fence between religion and spirituality, author Alexys V. Wolf hopes to guide you in your transition from rigid religion to spiritual intimacy with God. Learn to walk in divine light and authority, grow the courage to live a fulfilled life of peace and understanding without judgment, and develop patience and wisdom with your fellow believers. By creating a private bond with God, you will hunger for the Word and never again get lost in the mundane world of man-made religion. By learning to die to the flesh and accept God's powerful association in your life, you will no longer be lost at the crossroads of religion; rather, you will develop a friendship like none other with the Father and radiate a light that will shine for others. Challenge yourself now to Look for God.
