Karen J. Greenberg, executive director of the Center on Law and Security at NYU Law School and the co-editor of the forthcoming book, The Torture Papers (Cambridge University Press-January 2005), is available to discuss America’s policy on torture (in Afghanistan, Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib), the “torture memos,” national and international security, and the Gonzales’ nomination.

The Torture Papers, some 1,200 pages, is the only book of record containing all of the major “torture memos” and reports that the Bush administration and U.S. officials wrote to legitimize coercive interrogation, including techniques many would label as torture, in Afghanistan, Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. Accessible and shocking, these documents reveal the episodic story of the government’s consistent attempts to work around international law and the Geneva Convention.

Importantly, The Torture Papers is a documented presentation. Many feel The Torture Papers will be as sensational as the The Pentagon Papers and The 9/11 Commission Report.

The Center on Law and Security is a research and policy center that studies the legal dimensions of security and counterterrorism at national and international levels. To reach Karen Greenberg, please call 212.992.8854, Email: karen.greenberg@nyu.edu
