No review as yet. Research item as it is a major source in The End of Faith. It does make the point that while torture had been around for some time, it took the Roman Catholic church to really bring it forward and refine it into the standard instrument of applied political power that we know today.

Shelves: history
A wonderfully detailed history of torture techniques throughout the ages. I wouldn't recommend trying to sit down and read it cover to cover--you start to feel a bit unnverved after awhile.
