Title   America's Disappeared: Secret Imprisonment, Detainees, and the War on Terror

Binding   Paperback

Book Condition   Brand New

Seller ID   1708

America’s Disappeared: Secret Imprisonment, Detainees and the War on Terror features first person accounts by individuals who have experienced the horrors of executive detention, including former Guantánamo detainees Shafiq Rasul and Asif Iqbal; Maher Arar, the Canadian citizen the United States sent to Syria to be interrogated and tortured for nearly a year; and many other non-citizens who were wrongly swept up in the post-9/11 terrorism investigations. These narratives appear alongside political and legal analysis of the Bush Administration’s controversial post-9/11 detention practices. The confirmation proceedings for Alberto R. Gonzales and Condoleeza Rice, like the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, have triggered a national debate about the U.S. government’s controversial treatment of detainees and its practice of torture. At the heart of the debate is the question, Is the United States undermining democracy, freedom, and human rights in it’s effort to protect its citizens from terrorism? The authors of AMERICA'S DISAPPEARED answer, Yes. AMERICA'S DISAPPEARED describes how the U.S. government, in response to the events of 9/11, launched an unprecedented campaign of racial profiling, detentions, and deportations so grievous as to evoke the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Thousands have been imprisoned without trial or any kind of judicial hearing. Thousands remain indefinitely detained without charge being brought against them. Some are tortured; others are shipped off to other countries to be tortured. AMERICA'S DISAPPEARED brings together, for the first time, detainees’ own testimonies along with analysis by the leading constitutional attorneys and human rights advocates. In addition to a detailed exploration of detention—the forms currently in use, and the conditions of each—the book challenges the Bush administration’s justifications for violating the Geneva Conventions and the most basic definitions of human rights. The book features first-person accounts of the horrors of indefinite detention by individuals who have experienced it, including former Guantánamo detainees Shafiq Rasul and Asif Iqbal; Maher Arar, the Canadian citizen sent to Syria by the United States to Syria, where he was interrogated and tortured for months; and many other non-citizens who were wrongly swept up in post-9/11 investigations.
