By Debra A. Miller (Editor)


The essays in this anthology provide contrasting views on the definition, use, and efficacy of torture. By evaluating and understanding divergent opinions, students will attain a broad base of knowledge on the subject. Essays cover topics including torture in Asia and Iraq, whether it is morally wrong, whether it's justified, and whether it ruins evidence. A question-and-response format prompts readers to examine complex issues from multiple angles. Important facts, perfect for report writing, are dispersed throughout in boxed insets.
