This timely and passionate book is the first to address itself to Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz's controversial arguments for the limited use of interrogational torture and its legalisation. It argues that the respectability Dershowitz's arguments confer on the view that torture is a legitimate weapon in the war on terror needs urgently to be countered. It takes on the advocates of torture on their own utilitarian grounds. It is timely and passionately written, in an accessible, jargon-free style. It forms part of the provocative and timely "Blackwell Public Philosophy" series.
