launches his new book A Place Outside the Law: Forgotten Voices of Guantánamo, containing firsthand testimonies from Guantánamo Bay, inspiring future generations to never repeat the human rights violations of the detention center.

"The definitive account of what happened at Guantánamo in all of its chilling and horrifying detail. What makes this book unique and compelling is that it is the story of what it does to people’s lives to create ‘a place outside the law.’ Through his countless interviews, Professor Honigsberg describes the impact of Guantánamo on those who have been part of it: soldiers, medical personnel, lawyers, interrogators, torturers, detainees. It is the story of what happens when a country abandons the rule of law.”--Erwin Chemerinsky, UC Berkeley, School of Law
