4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tells the inside story of how the U.S. government adopted torture as official policy in the aftermath of 9/11. [The film] examines how coercive interrogation methods were used by the CIA and then in military interrogations at Guantanamo Bay and Iraq. It carefully presents evidence that the Bush administration promoted these methods and developed legal justification for the practice - and so lays to rest the 'rotten apple' defense for abusive interrogation at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and elsewhere"--Container

South Africa : the making of U.S. policy, 1962-1989( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides a contemporary record of changing U.S. responses to historical events in South Africa from 1962 to 1989. Coveted for its resources, supported as an ally, empowered by its nuclear capability and hated for its policy of apartheid, South Africa remains a country of extremes. Reactive in nature, U.S. policies toward South Africa reflect a desire to reconcile conflicting interests in South Africa and the region. Addresses the following central aspects of U.S. policy toward South Africa: Arms Embargoes, Nuclear Collaboration, Economic Sanctions and Regional Conflict. The making of U.S. South African policy appears as a series of responses to South Africa's changing domestic situation and to its relations within the region. The following pages address four broad policy areas, identifying issues central to U.S.-South African relations and charting their coverage in the document collection
