Editorial Reviews

Review

Torture and State Violence in the United States is a very useful bit of research, bringing together many resources that readers would require hours or days to assemble on their own.

(Jack David Eller Anthropology Review Database)

[Pallitto] tries to demonstrate that the cruelty manifest in American state violence―the genus of which torture is a species―has been a constant in the 400 years of American history.
