10 Books About Interrogation and Torture
After the Guantanamo Diary, read these
On 20 January 2015, Canongate caused a stir by publishing a book by a long-held Guantanamo Bay inmate that describes the (alleged) torture and abuse he experienced at the hands of prison guards and US interrogators. As well as being a landmark - the first book published by a still-imprisoned detainee - the book is a harrowing account of the heavy-handed interrogation techniques applied by his captors, and makes for shocking reading.
This isn't the first book examining the treatment of prisoners, however. In fact, there are a whole host of non-fiction books and memoirs on this very topic. These books are never easy to get through, but they are certainly eye-opening.
