This edited volume offers a comparative and interdisciplinary analysis of interrogation and questioning in war and conflict in the twentieth century.
Despite the current public interest and its military importance, interrogation and questioning in conflict is still a largely under-researched theme. This volume's methodological thrust is to select historical case studies from twentieth-century conflicts ranging from the First World War until the war in the Former Yugoslavia, and including the Second World War, decolonization, the Cold War, the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland and international justice cases in The Hague. These case-studies were selected because they resurface previously unexplored sources on the topic, or revisit known cases which allow us to analyse the role of interrogation and questioning in intelligence, security and military operations, as well as in international justice, not only focusing on the methods used, but also raising awareness on other important issues. For example, how do intelligence, security, military and international justice institutions conceive of interrogation and questioning? How has this been put into practice in the twentieth century? What elements, such as languages, cultural differences, ethnicity and psychology, affect the conduct of interrogation and questioning and their outcome? What are the effects of the various approaches to interrogation on the institutions implementing them? What are the differences in approaches adopted in military interrogation and interviewing, interrogation for intelligence and security, and witness/suspect questioning in international justice settings? And again are there any differences in methods used by liberal states and dictatorial regimes, and in different situations, such as total war and counter-insurgency for example? And, most importantly, is the use of harsh methods allowed in the fight against enemies such as Nazi spies and terrorists? Do these methods work?
This book will be of much interest to students of intelligence studies, strategic studies, counter-terrorism, international justice, history and IR in general.

This richly illustrated volume describes the performance of total and subtotal gastrectomy with extended D2 lymphadenectomy by providing a detailed step-by-step guide to both manual and mechanical procedures. Gastric cancer is the fourth most commonly occurring cancer and the second most common cancer-related cause of death worldwide, and surgery remains the only potentially curative treatment. Although several aspects of surgical management are still controversial, all guidelines for the treatment of curable gastric cancer recommend subtotal gastrectomy (for tumors located in the antrum and corpus) or total gastrectomy (for tumors located in the fundus) with extended D2 lymphadenectomy. Various technical tips and secrets are revealed that serve to simplify the procedure and simultaneously make it more effective: by rendering esophagojejunal and gastrojejunal anastomosis more secure, the risk of leakage is minimized. High-quality intraoperative color photographs and drawings covering all steps facilitate understanding of these complex operations and will prove an invaluable tool for surgeons, residents and professionals in the field.
