This book relates the history and politics of torture up until the 's, after which the author appears to totally run of steam.

Great book to read during Christmas for that holiday cheer.:) The book goes through much of the human history of torture and executions with just enough detail to impress upon you the darkness of humanity.

For often public torture and executions were treated as entertainment the same way we treat Idol or got talent/5. At the end of the book, the authors offer modern-day scenarios (while not necessarily utilizing the Rack, the Pear, the Gibbet or the Iron Maiden), and leave the reader with a question of what the reader can do - since torture has and probably never will become just another passage in a history book/5(64).

Eyewatering procession of modes and means of torture throughout world history, written by an author from the s with a surprisingly modern and radical perspective; he deplores animal torture as much as human, and justifiably criticises bullfights, halal/kosher slaughter and circuses as belonging to the past in the same way the stocks, the rack and the scavenger's daughter do/5.

This incomparable, extremely thorough book — told with a frightening and factual honesty — examines every aspect of torture: professional torturers, theories and techniques, the role of torture in history, moral implications, and the refinements brought to the practice of torture by individual fanatics, religious groups, the military, and 4/5(3).

The book itself came in great shape even though it was used. It's pretty big and it's built kind of like a book you'd find in a middle school library but it's pretty well written.

The Torture Letters: Reckoning with Police Violence. Laurence Ralph (Available as a free e-book until June 6.) In The Torture Letters, Laurence Ralph chronicles the history of torture in Chicago, the burgeoning activist movement against police violence, and the American public’s complicity in perpetuating torture at home and abroad.

The origin of torture dates back to A.D. when Roman jurists used torturous methods to obtain the truth. But what’s disturbing though is that over the years, people have come up with more methods to inflict pain and eventually death in the most horrifying ways imaginable.

Reaching back to the year BC, the Han Dynasty appears to have implemented the technique as a reliable punishment that didn’t leave marks. 1 Think of it as the “phone book torture” of the ancient Chinese world.

Like beating someone with a phone book, you do it so that you don’t leave physical evidence of torture on the victim. The book details man's inhumanity to his fellow man. The methods of torture are gruesome and barbaric and I was struck by how many of the various tortures were sanctioned and promoted by various religions.

The History Of Torture book. By Scott. Edition 1st Edition. First Published eBook Published 28 October Pub. location London. Imprint : Scott. If you think horticulture and torture don't gel well, you clearly haven't heard of the bamboo torture method.

A restrained victim would be made to sit on a bamboo sapling. Bamboo grows really fast. Such torture was known as being "broken on the rack," "racked," or "stretched on the rack." It could be combined with other forms of torture to make things even more painful.

In one story, a Christian youth was tied to a wheel and his joints destroyed by the stretching. A fire was lit beneath the wheel, adding to the torture. The greater challenge of his book is the way he presents more ambiguous situations, like those involving police officers who did not participate in the torture but also took no action to stop it.
