Shadow Lives
“. . . a searching, sensitive, and wrenching account of the ordeal of the women left behind, their torment, their endurance and courage, their triumphs over the cruel ‘extension of prison to home.’ And not least,picture of what we have allowed ourselves to become.”––Noam Chomsky

Shadow Lives reveals the unseen side of the “wars” since 9/11: their impact on the wives and families of men incarcerated in Guantanamo, or in prison or under house arrest in Britain and the U.S. It raises urgent questions about civil liberties that no one can afford to ignore.

British journalist Victoria Brittain is a former editor of The Guardian newspaper in the UK. She lived and worked as a journalist in Washington, Nairobi, Saigon, Algiers, and London, and is co-author of Moazzam Begg’s 2006 Guantanamo memoir, Enemy Combatant.

Sponsored by: Masjid As-Salam, Muslim Solidarity Committee, National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms (NCPCF)/Capital Region chapter, and Project SALAM.

Co-sponsored by: Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, Bill of Rights Defense Committee (BORDC), Dr. Dhafir Support Committee, Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR), Upper Hudson Peace Action, Veterans for Peace/Chapter 10, Women Against War.
