Contrary to US government assertions, the Abu Ghraib photos do not reflect the perverse handiwork of a 'few bad apples'. As American Torture reveals, tortures such as sensory deprivation, sexual humiliation and forced standing are core elements of the American detention regime, a product of more than sixty years of government research and development fully detailed in extensive CIA manuals. In the wake of the Abu Ghraib scandal, mainstream media and human rights organisations have exhaustively documented the American use of torture in detention centres around the world. Although expansive, these reports lack context. American Torture examines the origins of this detention regime and traces how it was refined, spread and kept legal. Quantity Available: 1.
