The first full reckoning of what actually happened at Abu Ghraib prison-"one of the most devastating of the many books on Iraq" ("The New York Times Book Review") A relentlesly surprising and perceptive account of the front lines of the war on terror, "Standard Operating Procedure" is a war story that takes its place among the classics. Acclaimed author Philip Gourevitch presents the story behind a defining moment in the war, and a defining moment in our understanding of ourselves- the infamous Abu Ghraib photographs of prisoner abuse. Drawing on Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris's astonishing interviews with the Americans who took and appeared in the pictures, "Standard Operating Procedure" is an utterly original book that stands to endure as essential reading long after the current war in Iraq passes from the headlines.

Review quote

"Gourevitch's eye for telling detail evokes the best of "The New Yorker" tradition-Capote's "In Cold Blood", Hersey's "Hiroshima... Standard Operating Procedure" is essential reading for our time."--"The Tennessean"
