The psychological origins of institutionalized torture by Mika Haritos-Fatouros( Book )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Original research, including interviews with former Greek torturers, is supplemented by discussion of former studies, military records and other sources, to provide disturbing but valuable insights into the psychology of torture. The book describes parallel situations such as the rites of passage in pre-industrial societies and cults, elite Corps military training and college hazing, eventually concluding that the torturer is not born, but made. Of essential interest to academics and students interested in social psychology and related disciplines, this book will also be extremely valuable
Operários da violência : policiais torturadores e assassinos reconstroem as atrocidades brasileiras by Martha Knisely Huggins( Book )

Violence Workers ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Of the twenty-three Brazilian policemen interviewed in depth for this landmark study, fourteen were direct perpetrators of torture and murder during the three decades that included the 1964-1985 military regime. These "violence workers" and the other group of "atrocity facilitators" who had not, or claimed they had not, participated directly in the violence, help answer questions that haunt today's world: Why and how are ordinary men transformed into state torturers and murderers? How do atrocity perpetrators explain and justify their violence? What is the impact of their murderous deeds-on them, on their victims, and on society? What memories of their atrocities do they admit and which become public history?
Bureaucratizing Masculinities among Brazilian Torturers and Murderers by Martha Knisely Huggins( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
