An American Policy of Torture

Professor Marjorie Cohn's new tome on the subject has received rave reviews,

"A magnificent, though deeply disturbing collection of essays on torture, considering its history, its use since September 11, and the obstacles to holding those responsible accountable. This is the best collection of essays on the topic and it leaves no doubt that the nation has not yet come to grips with the inhumanity perpetrated under the guise of national security." --Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Distinguished Professor of Law, University of California, Irvine, School of Law
