Jane Mayer in conversation about her new, best-selling book, “The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned into a War on American Ideals.” This event took place at Google’s Mountain View, CA headquarters on August 8, 2008 as part of the Authors@Google program.

The Dark Side is a dramatic, riveting, and definitive narrative account of how the United States made terrible decisions in the pursuit of terrorists around the world–decisions that not only violated the Constitution to which White House officials took an oath to uphold, but also hampered the pursuit of Al Qaeda. In gripping detail, acclaimed New Yorker writer and bestselling author, Jane Mayer, relates the impact of these decisions—U.S.-held prisoners, some of them completely innocent, were subjected to treatment more reminiscent of the Spanish Inquisition than the twenty-first century.
