This is an extraordinary collection on the sin of torture. This collection of essays suggests that American counterterrorism policies in the Bush years were immoral, unwise, and un-American, and offers considerable detailed analysis to back up such claims. Several dozen specialists in various aspects of law, ethics, politics, and religion analyze both how our nation drifted into such egregious policies and what resources can be drawn upon to pull us out of them, once and for all. The book is unique in its interdisciplinary and interfaith quality. It contains insider accounts from people who served in the military during the Bush years as well as those who have been to Guantanamo and represented clients there. It offers probing religious and ethical analysis from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim perspectives. This is the most decisive analysis and repudiation of Bush detainee policies to be found anywhere in print. The book should be appealing to activists who have worked on this issue, people of multiple faith perspectives, academics from various disciplines, and concerned and interested citizens.
