The first full reckoning of what actually happened at Abu Ghraib prison—“one of the most devastating of the many books on Iraq” (The New York Times Book Review) A relentlesly surprising and perceptive account of the front lines of the war on terror, Standard Operating Procedureis a war story that takes its place among the classics. Acclaimed author Philip Gourevitch presents the story behind a defining moment in the war, and a defining moment in our understanding of ourselves— the infamous Abu Ghraib photographs of prisoner abuse. Drawing on Academy Award–winning filmmaker Errol Morris’s astonishing interviews with the Americans who took and appeared in the pictures, Standard Operating Procedureis an utterly original book that stands to endure as essential reading long after the current war in Iraq passes from the headlines.

Philip Gourevitch, a staff writer at "The New Yorker", lives in New York City. His last book, "We Wish to Inform You that Tomorrow We Will be Killed with Our Families: Stories from Rwanda" (FSG, 1998), won the National Book Critics Circle & Los Angeles Times Book Awards.

Errol Morris has directed documentary films including The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of War, which won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2004.
