Joseph Margulies talked about his first book, Guantanamo and the Abuse of Presidential Power, published by Simon and Schuster. He explored the alleged human rights abuses of more than five hundred prisoners held captive in Guantanamo Bay Naval Station. He examined U.S. government interrogation practices of detainees, arguing that the detainees were interrogated unlawfully and that changes should be made in U.S. foreign policy. Mr. Margulies, a Minneapolis lawyer and civil rights activist, served as lead counsel in Rasul v. Bush, successfully petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to extend the right of judicial review to all prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions. close
