Once A Jolly Hangman (Revised Edition)

 
SYNOPSIS
Over the past few decades, investigative journalism has come to mean the kind of brave reporting that exposes injustice, wrongdoing and, above all, the abuse of power. Alan Shadrake’s hard-hitting book cuts through the official silence to reveal disturbing truths about Singapore’s use of the death penalty. From in-depth interviews with Darshan Singh, Singapore’s chief executioner for nearly fifty years, to meticulously researched accounts of numerous high profile cases, Once a Jolly Hangman is an exposé of gross abuses of fundamental human rights. This completely revised and updated edition also offers a compelling account of the author’s arrest and trial for contempt of court for daring to put the Singapore justice system in the dock.

On the first edition:
‘Alan Shadrake has done great service to this country through his investigative work … he has delineated the baseline which any debate about capital punishment has to proceed from’
– Alex Au, ‘Yawning Bread’

‘brutally honest and hard-hitting… it provides a rare insight into Singapore’s highly secretive death penalty cases’
– Megawati Wijaya, Asia Times

‘[Shadrake] does enough to convince even proponents of the death penalty that it is time to reassess the way Singapore handles capital cases’
– Ben Bland, Asia Sentinel
