    Writing from a deontological perspective, this book is in parts Part 1 is a legal philosophical attempt at justifying non coercive interrogation within hypothetical frameworks and thought experiments that focus on democratic, just society government To me, these hypotheticals are irrelevant because they do not exist, but they are thought experiments that he asks us to participate in while getting as close as he can to saying this is how it is now in the real world In part 2 he attempts to justify non coercive interrogation methods in wars and the best way to classify people in war so that they are treated in a way that preserves them as people but also as subjects to be interrogated Skerker does not glorify torture and in that last chapter he uses consequentialism to deconstruct the necessity to torture someone in a ticking bomb scenario Dershowitz loves ticking time bomb thought games This book really annoyed me Part 1 uses premises that are not true for many people in the US and around the world So, aside from his legal philosophical thought experiments, there does not seem to be a whole lot of applicability In the second part, he seems to make better points regarding the categorization of people in war zones, the need to classify people as POWs and the need to not go into coercive methods torture when demanding information from people classed as oppositional He uses Iraq and Afghanistan in a lot of examples He never raises the question of the grave breach of international law that allowed the invasion and occupation of two countries by the US and its meager allies let alone the numerous bombings and killing of civilians He picks up after that question is answered by the criminal acts conducted by the administrations of Bush and Obama not to speak of all the other war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated by other US administrations going back to the Second World War So, since that question is answered, whatever moral conundrum he may have felt is removed He can go forward without questioning, which makes me question why the hell he would write a book in the first place In conclusion, if a professor at the Naval Academy is not going to be honest with the reader about his biases, refuses to touch on the grave breaches of human rights and international law and then writes a book about interrogation after the fact a gnat buzzing in the faces of the administrations that have conducted torture and other horrendous violations in which he admonishes them and tells them non coercion is the way to go not to mention all the other violations perpetrated in war, then Michael Skerker appears to be enduring a prolonged delusional state and any writing of his should be disregarded until such time that he gains the moral fortitude to write something worthwhile, oppositional, and not delusional.
