From the cover: “Political prisoners are the victims of man’s most vicious inhumanity to his own kind. The Phenomenon is by no means new — yet in modern society political captivity has assumed vaster and more terrifying proportions than Ever before. The Anatomy of Captivity presents a much-needed exploration of the underlying reasons for political imprisonment, and of the various ways it is put into practice. The behaviour of the captors, and of the authority they represent, is considered and analysed.”
