This book, based on a two-year study of former prisoners of the U.S. government's detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, reveals in graphic detail the cumulative effect of the Bush administration's 'war on terror'. Scrupulously researched and devoid of rhetoric, the book deepens the story of post-9/11 America and the nation's descent into the netherworld of prisoner abuse. Researchers interviewed more than sixty former Guantanamo detainees in nine countries, as well as key government officials, military experts, former guards, interrogators, lawyers for detainees, and other camp personnel. We hear directly from former detainees as they describe the events surrounding their capture, their years of incarceration, and the myriad difficulties preventing many from resuming a normal life upon returning home. Prepared jointly by researchers with the Human Rights Center, University of California, Berkeley, and the International Human Rights Law Clinic, University of California, Berkeley School of Law, in partnership with the Center for Constitutional Rights, "The Guantanamo Effect" contributes significantly to the debate surrounding the US' commitment to international law during war time.
