This review is from: The Question (Paperback)
I read this as part of an LLM course, looking at France in Algeria in the context of torture. Essentially, this book is the basic, no frills and not "sweetened" account of a man being tortured. What makes it such a facinating resource is that it deals with the psychology, the mindset, of both tortured and torturer. Well worth reading alongside arguements justifying torture as a valid technique. See which argument you find stronger.

This is a short book, and can comfortable read in a couple of hours. That is not to detract from the easy of reading and the overall quality of the account. Worth buying for anyone interested in France, the Algeria war (1954-1962), Torture, Human Rights and the human mind.
