Widely acclaimed as a publishing milestone, The Torture Papers
(Cambridge, 2005) constitutes the definitive book of public record
detailing the Bush Administration's policies on torture and
political prisoners. In the process of assembling the documents,
memoranda, and reports that comprise the material in The Torture
Papers, a vital question arose: What was the rationale behind the
Bush Administration's decision to condone the use of coercive
techniques in the interrogation of detainees suspected of terrorist
connections? The use of these techniques at Abu Ghraib and
Guantanamo has sparked an intense debate in America. The Torture
Debate in America captures the arguments on torture that have been
put forth by legislators, human rights activists, and others. It
raises the key moral, legal, and historical questions that have led
to current considerations on the use of torture. Divided into three
sections, the contributions cover all sides of the debate, from
absolute prohibition of torture to its use as a viable option in
the War on Terror.
