Alfred W. McCoy is Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. In his book A Question of Torture: CIA Interrogation, from the Cold War to the War on Terror, McCoy traces the CIA's secret, fifty-year effort to develop psychological forms of torture. He shows how after 9/11 torture became Washington's weapon of choice in both the CIA's global prisons and in "torture-friendly" countries to which detainees were dispatched.
