Gareth Peirce's Dispatches from the Dark Side in the Observer and Guardian
Gareth Peirce's Dispatches from the Dark Side: On Torture and the Death of Justice appeared in the Guardian and Observer this weekend.
Liberty Director Shami Chakrabarti's chose the book as one of her Best Books of the Year for 2010 for the Observer:
Gareth Peirce is such a private person that despite a momentous career (representing the Birmingham Six, Lockerbie families and Guantánamo detainees among others), Dispatches from the Dark Side (Verso) is her first book. It is a timely reminder of the darker side of lawlessness in freedom's name.

Steven Poole also reviews the book as one of his weekly choices for the Guardian, commenting on the "attractive steeliness" of her writing, and asking "When is a "miscarriage" of justice really a perversion of it?"
