The declassified summary of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s study of the CIA’s detention and interrogation program – also known as the “Senate Torture Report” — contained brutal details about the treatment of more than 100 prisoners.

Melville House, a small independent press, decided to expedite publication of a cleanly formatted edition in book form. Kojo talks with the press’ co-publisher about why it was important for the report to be available in this format so quickly.
