A new piece in this week’s issue of The Nation considers Elaine Scarry and, through her criticism, when, how, and why torture has become so appalling.
Our latest issue is out! Featuring a dossier on cultural renditions of the Guantánamo Bay Detention Center twenty years after it opened, including two essays from former detainees, our Winter 2022 issue also includes an essay on a resilience approach to human rights in contemporary Syria and Lebanon, and two essays on the International Committee of the Red Cross: one considers the organization's attempts to be neutral in early 1950s Korea, and the other presents the ICRC's managerial engagement with armed violence in Rio de Janeiro.View entire issue > Save Save Save
