Some estimate that more than 300 articles have been published in psychological journals on this topic.

This is followed by a section on the torture of prisoners and the role of psychologists. It includes discussion of resolutions passed by American Psychological Association (APA) on this topic and briefly reviews criticisms of these resolutions.
