Focus Magazine 12/2004 Review from previous edition A magisterially detailed survey... Taylor is never less than direct and engaging. The subject may be difficult but the writing never is. With no hint at all of academic pretension, this is a model of how to make hard science accessible without rendering it impossibly watered down or patronising. This is an outstanding book. Academic researchers and human rights professionals will find it a goldmine of relevant research and
information. And anyone else interested in psychology will find it a thrill.

THES The book is to be commended. Taylor writes engagingly.

Morning Star I can't remember when I last encountered such a thoroughly argued book which was also so accessible. A miracle of cogency.

The Guardian An ambitious and well-written study
