Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A very interesting book and history bestseller, Montaillou: Cathars and Catholics in a French village, 1294-1324, was written by famous historian Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie from the interrogation proceedings. I don't remember any torture being mentioned. But the wealth of information that could be found shows an intense will to understand what happened in the village - and allowed Le Roy Ladurie to pretty much build a sociology of the community. I'm not sure American interrogators are close to being able and interested in actually understanding what happens to those they question.
