Tuesday, July 12, 2011
Joseph Braude discusses his time embedded with a hardened unit of detectives in Casablanca who handle everything from busting al-Qaeda cells to solving homicides. The Honored Dead: A Story of Friendship, Murder, and the Search for Truth in the Arab World tells the story of a seemingly commonplace murder of a young guard at a warehouse. Braude’s pursuit of the truth behind the murder takes him from cosmopolitan Marrakesh to the Berber heartland, from the homes of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the country to the backstreets of Casablanca.
