New book about U.S. military commissions

Michael ("Dan") Mori, a U.S. Marine Corps lawyer for military commission defendant David Hicks, has a new book out: In the Company of Cowards, reviewed here in The Guardian. Mr. Mori now lives in Australia. From the review:
In the Company of Cowards is a lawyer’s account of court victories that turned to ashes; of incompetence and political malice on both sides of the Pacific; of the Howard government’s indifference to ordinary principles of justice; and of Mori’s rescue of this prisoner from his Cuban jail more by winning over the Australian public than persuading the military officials of Washington.
