In this investigation of the concept of closure after a traumatic event, Madeira (law, Indiana Univ.) provides a comprehensive case study of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and the 2001 execution of its perpetrator, Timothy McVeigh. She begins the book, based on seven years of work, with a description of the public's perception of McVeigh, shaped by his public arrest and media depiction. Taking readers through the arrest, media coverage, trial, and execution as seen through the eyes of the surviving victims, she also explores the significance of the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. Through extensive interviews with survivors and the families of the deceased, Madeira studies the meaning of "closure" and concludes that it is a myth. The book is laid out chronologically and benefits from extensive time the author spent with survivors as well as her insight into McVeigh's motives, the judge's handling of the trial, and the legal changes that resulted from the crime. VERDICT Clearly written and persuasive, this is an important contribution to the literature of closure. Recommended.--Harry Charles, St. Louis
