Book Review: Just Violence: Torture and Human Rights in the Eyes of the Police by Rachel Wahl

Amit Prakash provides an overview of Rachel Wahl’s Just Violence: Torture and Human Rights in the Eyes of the Police. He explains how police officers in India draw from global human rights discourse to justify their own acts of violence and torture, and how human rights education is used to justify these actions in terms of security and justice concerns. Prakash highlights Wahl’s attempt to go beyond the binaries often associated with human rights and torture.
