At the Side of Torture Survivors: Treating a Terrible Assault on Human Dignity

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

This book seemed to elicit a sort of countertransference reaction in this reviewer, which I learned is similar to what torture survivors often encounter in their efforts at recovery. It was harder to get started writing this review than most. As I began to read the book, it was clear why: Focusing on what the editors characterize in their subtitle as "a terrible assault on human dignity" is unpleasant.
