Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"With this superb collection of documents, we can begin to see the contours of our new post 9-11 world." The Washington Post on The Torture Papers

"...a block of granite on the path of any forgetfulness. The book is a true public service, compiled by two U.S. lawyers, which brings the whole twisted story into the public domain, and let us hope into every library and many personal hands." Toronto Globe

"an excellent and thorough introduction ot the legal and institutional arrangements of the contemporary minority rights regime in the Western world. A great value of that book is precisely that it positions questions of minority rights and self-determination right in the analytical propinquity to democracy, and as such it manages to address an important lacuna within the rights-oriented literature of today." - Andrew Goldmsith, Law and Politics Review

The broad Variety of Contemporary Opinions on Torture in the U.S. 18 juin 2013
Par empeters - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Useful selection of papers from all sides of the recent and current debates on the use of torture in and by the U.S.
A discussion of modern torture 29 décembre 2012
Par Thomas A. Powell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is not an exhaustive or in-depth study of torture. That being said, it does present both sides of the debate over the use of torture and its refined definition during the Bush administration. The book is a compilation of articles by various authors that weigh in on the topic. For my purposes, this book served my need to get an overview of the debate very well. It does cover some of the legal implications of the Bush definition of torture, but doesn't really provide much historical background. Of course, the title does not necessarily suggest it would. I would recommend this book as a source for learning about torture and the moral considerations that are at the center of the debate.

critically important intellectual material 2 décembre 2006
Par Bruce D. Wilner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Few questions are more relevant to our times than that of the resurrection (as if it had ever actually died!) of judicial torture. No longer safely able to stand tall and insular on its humanistic pedestal, America must face this issue NOW. People think of screws and boots and wedges and coals, but such medievalism is no longer remotely relevant: far more reliable (not to mention quicker) results are obtainable from pharmaceuticals (perhaps--like the death penalty--another issue where the Hippocratic oath is [?] at odds with Dr. Smith's specific actions today). Read, absorb, consider, conjecture, believe.

An Important Book on a Regrettably Current Issue 8 juillet 2011
Par bluewombat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Karen Greenberg has done a good job of assembling essays on the issue of torture. It's evidence of the intellectual integrity of this work that it includes pro-torture arguments as well as anti-torture ones: it's important for those of us fighting to rid the U.S. of this medieval scourge (and bring justice to high government officials who have authorized it) to familiarize ourselves with the rationalizations of our adversaries.
