Summary
Why are prisoners horribly abused in some wars but humanely cared for in others? This book explores the profound differences in the ways that captives are treated during armed conflict. It focuses on the dual role played by regime type and the nature of the conflict in determining whether captor states opt for brutality or mercy. Integrating original data on prisoner treatment during the last century of interstate warfare with in-depth historical cases, the book demonstrates how domestic constraints and external incentives shape the fate of captured enemy combatants
