Book review

For over two decades, Amnesty International has been at the forefront of the international campaign against torture. For the first time, Amnesty International has commissioned the foremost experts in the field to write about the history of torture, the methods used, the torturers themselves, and their victims. A Glimpse of Hell is the result.

Throughout recorded history, humans have deliberately subjected others to physical pain and mental anguish, sometimes in spite of laws prohibiting such behavior, sometimes with the full backing of the legal system. Early chapters offer a historical overview of torture and its popular and legal meanings, and examine its relationship with the law. Other contributions address specific methods used by torturers, their effects, and approaches for treating torture survivors. The terror of torture is not confined to the individual victim. Several essays discuss its consequences for other citizens, specifically for women, children, and the family. They also provide resources for documenting and combatting torture when it happens. The volume concludes with a political strategy concerning what can be done to put a stop to torture worldwide.

Published to coincide with Amnesty International's most ambitious campaign against torture for over a decade, A Glimpse of Hell serves as a broad and authoritative source of information on torture throughout the world, all in one accessible and chilling volume.
