On Torture

The book, On Torture, was published this week by Johns Hopkins University Press. It is, collectively, an attempt to recast the misleading "torture debate" of the past several years and understand torture in its broader meanings, means and ends, official depictions, institutionalization, and implications. Please take a look. I think, now, we need to focus on accountability. But we have to have the problem framed correctly from the outset. The previous "torture debate" doesn't do this. I hope and believe that this book does.

Here's the Amazon link.
