Psychological Origins of Institutionalized Torture by Mika Haritos-Fatouros
Book DescriptionOriginal 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 to policy-makers, professionals working in government, and all those interested in securing and promoting human rights.

Of the 23 Brazilian policemen interviewed in-depth for this study, 14 were direct perpetrators of torture and murder during the three decades that included the 1964-1985 military regime. They help answer questions that haunt today's world on how ordinary men are transformed into state torturers.
