“Living With the Death Penalty” is a new book that examines the impact of executions on correctional officers, offenders, chaplains, attorneys, and victims’ family members. In this book, author Courtney Vaughn, a rape victim and an Educational Leadership and Policy Studies professor at the University of Oklahoma, offers first-person accounts of what it is like to experience the death penalty from a variety of perspectives. She explores the sacrifice, alienation, and resiliency that are common traits among the various groups impacted by executions, and uses their stories to provide readers with a better understanding of the “circle of violence” associated with the death penalty.
