The status of torture amongst US soldiers, officials and citizens

None Of Us Were Like This Before is an exploration of the complex status of torture amongst the US army, public and senior officials.

Sergeant Adam Gray came home from a year's tour in Iraq—only to die in his barracks. For three years, Joshua E S Phillips investigated Adam's death. He discovered a story of American troops psychologically scarred by the abuse they had meted out to Iraqi prisoners. Phillips will be talking about his book and signing copies afterwards.

Joshua E S Phillips has reported from the Middle East and Asia. Based in New York, his work has appeared in the Washington Post, Newsweek, Salon and the San Francisco Chronicle. He has produced radio broadcasts for the BBC and NPR and is the winner of the Alfred I. du Pont-Columbia University Award and the Newspaper Guild's Hey wood Broun Award.
