An expert in terrorism, counterterrorism, and national security law, as well as a former member of the Israeli Defense Forces, Amos Guiora offers a theoretical analysis and a practical application of coercive interrogation in the post-9/11 world. He suggests developing and implementing a hybrid paradigm based on American criminal law, the Geneva Convention, and the Israeli model of trial as the most relevant judicial regime.
"By combining his impressive professional experience in this area with his considerable academic expertise, Guiora has written a timely and thought-provoking book. His use of the lessons learned from the interrogations of African Americans in the Deep South is highly original and very illuminating.... This is a must-read for policymakers, human rights proponents and all those interested in one of the most difficult dilemmas facing liberal democracies today."—Tom Zwart
