In Mainstreaming Torture, Rebecca Gordon argues that institutionalized state torture remains as wrong today as it was on the day before the terrible attacks of September 11.
Furthermore, U.S. practices during the “war on terror” are rooted in a history that began long before September that day, a history that includes both support for torture regimes abroad and the use of torture in American jails and prisons.
Torture is still an urgent moral issue. This is a book for anyone who cares about how institutionalized torture affects its victims, its practitioners, and the nation that gives it a home.
