As a professional model and dancer in 1990, Kristine Huskey would never have guessed that by 2006 she'd be one of America's top human rights experts - and attorney for the world's most controversial prisoners. Then again, her life had always had its unexpected turns. In Justice at Guantanamo, Huskey tells the fascinating story of how she went from a childhood in Alaska to a civil war in Africa, the glitter (and grunge) of life in the Big Apple, backpacking overseas, and, finally, her true calling - law. Huskey was one of the first female lawyers to represent detainees of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp - including those in two cases that yielded a landmark Supreme Court decision allowing them to challenge their status in federal courts. Justice at Guantanamo delves into Huskey's visits to the camp's secretive, all-male world.
