Editors: Ralph D. McPhee
Book Description:
The United States has long adhered to the rules regarding the treatment of prisoners as set forth by the Geneva Convention. Following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, however, special prisons, such as Guantanomo Bay, Abu Ghraib, and other prisons located around the world that are referred to as “dark sites” were opened for the confinement and interrogation of suspected enemy combatants. Media outlets and books have partially exposed occurances of various degrees of torture taking place in these facilties. These reports have generated a vigorous debate in the U.S. and the United Nations about the legality and morality of such treatments. This book presents recent analyses of these developments.
