Torture and Other Amenities in Asia―From the Himalayas to the Pacific Isles; From Medieval Times to Modern Days looks into the dark side of humanity. This work tells the reader about all cruel means humans can inflict on humans in this part of the world.

It covers the practices of cannibalism and headhunting, and gives detailed accounts about the history and the creative methods of torture that mankind invented to inflict pain on others for political, religious and personal reasons.
