Until the release of this book, little was known about interview and interrogation practices around the world, especially in non-Western countries like the Middle and Far East and especially in an integrated manner. There also appears to be a strong link between the countries where researchers are from and the amount of scientific knowledge we previously held about a particular country’s practice. Furthermore, a clear correlation exists between the lack of knowledge and those countries which are alleged (with strong anecdotal evidence) to use torture and other degrading forms of treatment. Thus the training of interviewers is absolutely vital in every aspect and this is an area that many chapters have highlighted.
