Richly told and deeply troubling, this book collects personal narratives of Muslim immigrants to the United States who were racially profiled, detained indefinitely, and mistreated following the September 11 attacks. From descriptions of physical abuse within American prisons to a harrowing account of extraordinary rendition and torture in Egypt, these powerful stories will inspire both empathy and outrage. Exploring themes of identity and ethnic tension against the backdrop of the global war on terror, Irum Shiekh here provides a space for former detainees to tell their stories and reveal the human cost of suspending civil liberties after a wartime emergency.
