From our regular book review column.

This book reviews scientific information and discusses the related policy, legal, and personal issues in an attempt to answer a fundamental question: how the experience of individual torture, large-scale massacres, religious or ethnic cleansing, death squads, the disappearance of loved ones, and random warrelated violence affects individuals, families, and societies.
