Michael Otterman is an award-winning freelance journalist and human rights consultant. He was a recent visiting scholar at the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney. He is the author of American Torture (Pluto, 2007).


American Torture is a hard-hitting survey revealing how torture became a standard practice in the War on Terror, how it was honed and legalised and how the military and CIA had used torture before both at home and abroad. These tortures were legalized using the laws designed to eradicate their use as the Cold War ended.. -- Internet Bookwatch American Torture is an easy book to read insofar as it is well-written and well-organized. ... Frankly, I'd rather deal with the permanent damage inflicted by American Torture on my psyche than live in benighted ignorance of the damage our nation wreaks on human beings in captivity every day. -- Pensito Review
