The History of Torture and Execution

Book - 2000
Rate this:
Military historian Kellaway chronicles these fascinating but grisly subjects by time, region, and method, beginning with the methods used by early civilizations, then covering the evolution from the sadistic tools of the medieval age to the modern search for humane execution. She includes hundreds of color photographs and illustrations as well as stories told by the victims themselves. Not recommended for the faint of heart. c. Book News Inc.
