This is a good 10-minute video of Dr. Garland giving a lecture in 2007 on the death penalty.

David Garland gives a very good lecture in this clip. It brings (at least for me) more personality into the book. This would be a good prelude to the book for high school students, as a way to highlight a frame of reference for why the author chose to write about this topic and where he is coming from prior to reading. This lecture may be hard for students who are below grade level to understand and follow, yet it may get students interested. Good choice!
