THE GUANTANAMO Guantanamo Lawyers  coverLAWYERS:
Inside a Prison Outside the Law

A Special Event
co-hosted by
Revolution Books and Barbara's Bookstore
Presented at Barbara's Bookstore 1218 S. Halsted St.

The Event will feature a Panel Discussion with:
Jonathan Hafetz
, GUANTANAMO LAWYERS co-editor and attorney with the National Security Project of the American Civil Liberties Union. Jonathan has represented detainees held in Guantanamo.
H. Candace Gorman Civil Rights attorney currently representing two Guantanamo Bay detainees.
Aziz Huq
, University of Chicago Law School Assistant Professor of Law.

THE GUANTANAMO LAWYERS contains over one hundred personal narratives from attorneys who have represented detainees held at "GTMO" as well as at other overseas prisons, from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan to secret CIA jails or "black sites." Mark Denbeaux and Jonathan Hafetz-themselves lawyers for detainees-collected stories that cover virtually every facet of Guantánamo, and the litigation it sparked. Together, these moving, powerful voices create a historical record of Guantánamo's legal, human, and moral failings, and provide a window into America's catastrophic effort to create a prison beyond the law. - NYUPress.org

In this recent film from National Geographic, paleontologist Paul Sereno introduces five new species of crocodiles that lived amongst - and even hunted - dinosaurs in Cretaceous Africa. The diverse lifestyles of these bizarre animals shed new light on the evolution of crocodiles. Sereno contrasts the ecological roles of modern and ancient crocs and explores the amazing common adaptations that have allowed crocs to survive successfully for 200 million years.

When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs depicts the science as well as the process behind the discovery. Sereno's team used an array of scientific and artistic methods to bring their dynamic story to both an academic and a general audience. In addition to examining the fossil record, Sereno and his colleagues observed, filmed, and dissected modern crocodiles to understand their design and physiology. Computer tomography revealed the braincase and other internal structures of the skull. Cutting-edge artists brought the extinct crocs to life through illustration, flesh modeling, and computer animation. The resulting 144 page publication and full-length National Geographic film, released simultaneously in November 2009, have received acclaim and interest from scientists and enthusiasts around the world.

"I see paleontology as 'adventure with a purpose.' How else to describe a science that allows you to romp in remote corners of the globe, resurrecting gargantuan creatures that have never been seen? And the trick to big fossil finds? You've got to be able to go where no one has gone before." - Paul Sereno


In 1999 Sereno co-founded Project Exploration, a nonprofit science education organization that makes science accessible to the public-especially minority youth and girls-through personalized experiences with scientists and science. Project Exploration involves the public in the excitement of scientific discovery.
