A vivid and disorienting glimpse into the U.S. Naval Station in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba (known as "Gitmo"), and its growing diaspora of released men, through photographs, once-classified archival material, and first-person texts. With unique construction and text in English and Arabic, the book seeks common ground while provoking questions about compromises made in the West between humanity and fear in the post-9/11, "War on Terror" era. Essays by Moazzam Begg, Fred Ritchin, and Debi Cornwall. Design by David Chickey. For review copies or EU/UK shipping, contact email@example.com.
The limited edition includes a choice of one of three signed, original 13 x 19-inch prints (editions of 10 each): Smoke Break, Camp America; Prayer Rug with Arrow to Mecca; or Fidel Bobblehead.
