Synopsis

The History of Torture tells the complete story of torture, from its earliest uses right up to the present day. The book explains the tools and techniques of torture, from the first use of the rack in Ancient Greece to the use of modern drugs to elicit confessions. The book also details the fight against torture through the work of international campaigners such as Amnesty International. A subject which in moral terms at least permits no shades of grey is dealt with in an objective and detailed manner. This is a text-only ebook edition.
