Talks on Torture by Joshua E.S. Phillips

Tune into the Firedoglake Book Salon on Saturday, February 18 at 2pm PST (5pm EST) to join author Joshua E.S. Phillips in an online discussion of his book None of Us Were Like This Before: American Soldiers and Torture. In real time, participants, led by TruthOut's Jason Leopold, will weigh in on Phillips' incisive account of how ordinary soldiers in a US tank battalion, ill trained for the responsibilities foisted upon them, descended into the degradation of abuse.

Joshua Phillips will also speak on the following dates:

Tuesday, February 14: Boston University (two talks)

Thursday, Feburary 16: Reed College with leading torture expert Darius Rejali

Saturday, March 10: Panel discussion as part of Another Life
