Publisher Description

An unprecedented international publishing event: the first and only diary written by a still-imprisoned Guantánamo detainee.
Since 2002, Mohamedou Slahi has been imprisoned at the detainee camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. In all these years, the United States has never charged him with a crime. Although he was ordered released by a federal judge, the U.S. government fought that decision, and there is no sign that the United States plans to let him go.

Three years into his captivity Slahi began a diary, recounting his life before he disappeared into U.S. custody and daily life as a detainee. His diary is not merely a vivid record of a miscarriage of justice, but a deeply personal memoir---terrifying, darkly humorous, and surprisingly gracious. Published now for the first time, GUANTÁNAMO DIARY is a document of immense historical importance.

The censored parts...ugh

The book is censored on virtually every page. What is the point!? It's so frustrating to navigate. Buy the paper version...based on reviews I've read, it's a more pleasant read.

Devastating and important

I just finished this book and plan to urge everyone I know to read it. I do want to note that the footnotes in the iBook version of this book are incredibly unhelpful and impossible to navigate. In the book itself - footnotes are noted with an asterisk. It is virtually impossible to connect it to the note at the end of the book which is unfortunate as the notes are exceptionally edifying.
