Summary

This book examines the theoretical, policy and empirical arguments relevant to the debate concerning the legalisation of interrogational torture. Torturing Terrorists examines, as part of a consequentialist analysis, the nature and impact of torture and#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;the implications of its legal regulation#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;on individuals, institutions and wider society. In so doing, the book engages in a critical and wide ranging inter-disciplinary analysis of the arguments and claims that are put forward by the proponents and opponents of legalised torture and includes a detailed analysis of the use of interrogational torture by the United Kingdom. #xE3;#xAC;#xAC; The book includes a detailed analysis of the effectiveness of#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;interrogational torture, including analysis of evidence on the intelligence produced by#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;a variety of coercive interrogation techniques including waterboarding and the use of stress positions. It is the first text to distinguish between differing types of intelligence that are produced by torture, in particular, what will be termed #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;ticking bomb#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;intelligence#xE2;#xAC;" and#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;#xE2;#xAC;#xDC;infrastructure intelligence#xE2;#xAC;", and includes the text of a draft torture statute.
