Description:
Torture has a way of making the ordinary seem sinister. Objects that are pleasurable or useful in their everyday contexts, have all been deployed with chilling ingenuity by the world's torturers in recent times. This book examines what constitutes torture, the etymology of torture terms and whether torture can ever be justified.
