Author, law professor, and past president of the National Lawyer Guild, Marjorie Cohn will present her latest & acclaimed book, The United States and Torture: Interrogation, Incarceration & Abuse, which brings together leading experts on the history, ethics, legality, and scope of the U.S. use of torture.

“This book is incredible.  The truth is right there on the pages, assembled for everybody to see and read and understand.  Finally.  Accountability is the first step in healing as a nation.  The last line of the final chapter says it all: ‘Let us begin.’  Indeed, we must.” – Janis L.
