Review of The Trauma of Psychological Torture

This review addresses the nature of psychological torture by examining Almerindo Ojeda’s edited volume of the subject. This book addresses the dangers of “enhanced interrogation” from political, legal, psychiatric, and neurobiological perspectives; its contributors underscore the dangers of separating science from ethics and divorcing the healing professions from their mission to alleviate suffering. It details how eminent scholars became involved in CIA research that promoted torture.
