Terrorism and Torture

Terrorism and torture are twin evils that have dominated news
headlines – particularly since the horrifying events of 9/11. In
this thought-provoking volume, scholars from a diverse range of
disciplines examine the complex motivational and situational factors
contributing to terrorist acts and state-sponsored torture, and the
potential linkage between those two heinous human behaviors. They
also consider the strategies that might reduce the threat of future
terrorist acts, and the perceived necessity to engage in morally
reprehensible – and often illegal – torture practices. With its integrated
synthesis of contemporary theories and research on the complex
dynamics of the terrorism–torture link, this is an authoritative source
for scholars and students of psychology, criminal justice, law, media,
communication studies, and political science. It will also appeal to
students of other disciplines with an interest in the study of terrorism
and torture.
