Table of Contents

"[The Challenge] tells the story of a captive who gave his name to a great constitutional decision, and it describes the personal struggles of his lawyers, their courage, and their faults. . . . A work of rare drama."---Anthony Lewis, The New York Review of Books

"A riveting read."---San Francisco Chronicle

"The Challenge is not just a very readable account of an important case. It is also an intimate account of the lawyers who overcame personal conflicts, animus, and flaws to produce a decision for the ages." ---The New York Times

"An excellent legal thriller . . . It's through Mahler's brilliant narrative of these characters that he weaves together the broader, legally complex story of Hamdan v. Rumsfeld."---The Toronto Star

"Mahler excels at telling the story of a talented, fractious team coming together for a greater goal."---The New Yorker

"For those who thrill to what might be called the geology of American constitutional bedrock, The Challenge is a riveting read."---The New York Sun
