Summary
This book addresses a dilemma at the heart of the 'War on Terror' - whether it is ever justifiable to torture terrorists when innocent lives are at stake. The book analyses the moral arguments and presents a passionate defence of prohibition. It also examines the models of legalising torture suggested in Israel and the US
