Editorial Reviews

Review


"Waldron's luminous intellect beams piercing light into the dark corners of current American political culture and then illuminates unexpected avenues back toward civility and decency. His essay on torture is a special gift, characteristically uniting moral passion with analytic imagination."
-Henry Shue, University of Oxford

These essays explore many facets of the crimes against humanity approved and carried out by the Bush regime. Waldron's indictment is one of the most effective.
