Description
 
This unique book examines the techniques and tools used in torture, ranging from the earliest known historical instances of the practice right up to today’s allegations of torture in Abu Ghraib Prison and Guantanamo Bay. The different methods of inflicting pain are grouped by type (stretching, for instance, having been used particularly in the European Renaissance as well as still being widespread in the Middle East), showing the stark parallels in torture throughout history as used in different cultures and context. “A unique historical reference guide complete with 110 stunning photographs and etchings of the instruments of torture themselves.” Not for the faint of heart.
