Torture: A Collection. Torture is perhaps the most unequivocally banned practice in the world today. And in terror's wake, the use of such methods, at least under some conditions, has gained some prominent defenders. Conceived well before the Abu Ghraib story broke, Levinson's collection of essays by philosophers and lawyers provides a cooler, though not dispassionate, look at the issues surrounding torture. Danner's grim collection of documents charts how . government lawyers justified increasingly coercive "interrogation techniques" when dealing with prisoners who may (or may not) have been connected with al Qaeda and then with the Iraqi insurgency. Contributors include Jean Bethke Elshtain, Richard Posner, Michael Walzer, and the inevitable Alan Dershowitz.
Torture: A Collection brings together leading lawyers, political theorists, social scientists, and public intellectuals to debate the advisability of maintaining the absolute ban on torture and to reflect on what it says about our societies if we do-or do not-adhere to it in all circumstances. One important question is how we define torture at all.
