American Nuremberg: The U.S. Officials Who Should Stand Trial for Post-9/11 War Crimes

'“In American Nuremberg [Gordon] trades academic nuance for a plainspoken, even folksy, prose style. The effect is to present damning legal arguments as common moral sense. The book is eminently valuable in distinguishing the categories of potential crimes and the national and international laws relevant to them.” —Jeremy Varon, Los Angeles Review of Books   “Gordon’s terrific 2014 book Mainstreaming Torture put her on the map as a compelling human rights advocate. The book dissects the role of political rhetoric, media discourse, popular culture, and even academic treatise in making torture (by whatever name) acceptable. It stands as an instant classic among accounts of 9/11 and its aftermath, joining the path-breaking research of Alfred McCoy, Jane Mayer, Andy Worthington, and Karen Greenberg.” —Jeremy Varon, Los Angeles Review of Books'
