Summary "Nine essayists tackle what the prison abuse scandal means for America now and in the future and what it says about how we see ourselves and how we're perceived by others. Compelling social critiques acknowledge the ramifications of these and other atrocities as Americans are exposed, many for the fist time, to the politics of torture."--BOOK JACKET
