MICHAEL RATNER / ELLEN RAY
Guantanamo: What The World Should Know
Book - $7.00 (
Human rights lawyer Michael Ratner and Covert Action editor Ellen Ray reveal the truth about Guantanamo Bay Naval Station and the creation of a new network of US detention camps around the world. They give a definitive account of what Guantanamo means for the rule of law, for liberty, democracy, and the right to dissent. Gathered here for the first time, this volume also includes the governmental memoranda and orders that led to this system of detention without accountability, a letter from two recently released Guantanamo detainees, details of Ratner's Center For Constitutional Rights Supreme Court case on the Guantanamo detainees, and excerpts from the Geneva Convention.
"Michael Ratner is America's most important civil libertarian. If this book doesn't frighten the public into action, nothing will."
- John R. MacArthur (Harper's publisher)
"Many of us already know that imperial policies abroad undermine democracy at home. Guantanamo: What The World Should Know drives this point home like a nail through butter. Abusing people and violating international law will make us less secure, not more secure, and the policies of the Bush administration must be reversed as a prioirty issue of national security."
- Dr. Kevin Danaher, (Global Exchange co-founder)
