Staff Reviews

A lawyer and social justice advocate, Stevenson paints a devastating picture of the American criminal justice system and the racial biases that permeate it. Drawing on his experiences as a black man in America and those of his many clients, Stevenson beseeches his readers to try and better understand our fellow humans, and to just show some mercy.

I think this is the most important book to be published in the entire time that I worked as a bookseller. Bryan Stevenson’s work in the criminal justice system made me see the abuses of our prison system so much more clearly, as a part of a dehumanizing whole… and yet his voice in sharing these topics was calm, clear, crystalline and reassuring as well as emotionally affecting. If you’re going to read about the U.S. prison system, this is the book with which to start.

“The history of incarceration in America is deeply colored by our history of racism and poverty. Stevenson's work providing legal aid to death row inmates exposes truly inhumane, unjust practices and astonishing legal carelessness often fueled by outright prejudice. Just Mercy does not stop at reportage, but examines the costs to the individual, the family, the community, and society at large of these practices. This is a powerful book about one man's efforts to address injustice and a clarion call for reform not just for those imprisoned, but for a society that has lost its way.”
