She accomplishes this through the painstaking detailing of survivors' narratives, making it more difficult for us to hold this knowledge at a distance so we remain safe, untouched by tragedy. Her work reminds us that we are never completely beyond the reach of terror and once traumatized, the wounds are there and unremitting. Yet, she does not leave us without hope. Madeira's detailed, first [hand] narratives of grief and adaptation provide a very personal view. Naso "Madeira's book does a great service to the nation because it helps explain, using a tragedy and a trial we all remember, how differently victims of crime react to the legal process that takes hold in a high-profile case.

Killing McVeigh - Jody Lynee Madeira - Bok () | Bokus
Jodi Picoult Books. This item doesn't belong on this page. In Killing McVeigh, Jody Lynee Madeira uses the Oklahoma City bombing as a case study to explore how family members and other survivors come to terms with mass murder. As the fullest case study to date of the Oklahoma City Bombing survivors' struggle for justice and the first-ever case study of closure, this book describes the profound human and institutional impacts of these labors to demonstrate the importance of understanding what closure really is before naively asserting it can or has been reached.
In Killing McVeigh, Professor Madeira offers a faithful account of what followed through the words of victims and survivors. Her analysis shows how the death penalty forced so much energy and focus to be put on McVeigh, and how difficult it is to make sense of such a tragedy. Dieter, Executive Director, Death Penalty Information Center "Everyone seems to have an opinion about whether the execution of murderers can offer 'closure' to the victims' loved ones.
Finally, we have a study that has investigated the largest, most media-saturated mass murder and execution in recent times - the Oklahoma City bombing and the execution of Timothy McVeigh. Madeira's in-depth, fair-minded, and sensitive account opens a window for us into the struggles of those affected and explores the complicated role that our public institutions of criminal justice play in the complex and difficult work of reconstructing life after atrocity. Friendly Professor of Law, Harvard Law School "Clearly written and persuasive, this is an important contribution to the literature of closure.
In it, Madeira asks a question most of us have asked at one time or another in our lives: "What is closure? Does it exist? If so, where and for whom.

If not, why? We learn how offended victims were by McVeigh's presence in court -- and also how their perceptions of his bombing conspirator, Terry Nichols, were affected by the latter's family history. We learn about the emotions the victims felt between the date of McVeigh's death sentence and his execution -- a period of only four years because McVeigh, ironically, chose not to prolong his appeals. And we learn how the subsequent 10 years, and especially the events of September 11, , have affected these poor people.
