Unprecedented Access Inside an Interrogation Room (41 min)

The room is small, soundproofed, stripped of all decoration. Two chairs face each other in silent enmity. They are the only equipment needed for the game about to unfold—a high-stakes mental interplay between suspect and interrogator. 

Getting a book from the PCC Library

  • Enter a search in the PCC Library search box. 
  • If the book you want has a linked message starting with Available at..., and the book is available on your home campus, write down the location and call number.
