World Without Torture

| | TrackBacks (0)

A new blog I came across is looking for additions to their "reading list," Torture in black and white: books on tortureI can think of a couple right off the bat, from fiction:

Barry Eisler's Inside Out

and Mario Benedetti's Pedro and the Captain, translated by Adrianne Aron

to biography:

Murat Kurnaz's Five Years of My Life

and documented stories of prisoners themselves:

Andy Worthington's The Guantanamo Files.

A plethora of non-fiction accounts includes:

Alfred McCoy's A Question of Torture

Jameel Jaffer and Amrit Singh's Administration of Torture

Charles and Gregory Fried's Because It Is Wrong

GeoffreyRobertson's Crimes Against Humanity

Stephen Grey's Ghost Plane

Joseph Margulies Guantanamo and the Abuse of Presidential Power

Mark Denbeaux and Jonathan Hafetz's Guantanamo Lawyers

Steven Wax's Kafka Comes to America 

Peter Jan Honigsberg's Our Nation Unhinged

William Schulz's The Phenomenon of Torture

Rita Maran's Torture: The Role of Ideology in the French-Algerian War

Karen Greenberg and Joshua Dratel's The Torture Papers

Trevor Paglen and A.C. Thompson's Torture Taxi

Justine Sharrock's Tortured: When Good Soldiers Do Bad Things

and Marjorie Cohn's The United States of Torture.

I'm sure I've missed a lot in my list, and am eager to check out new suggestions; please forward those to the World Without Torture webpage so we all can share.
