Item description for Guantnamo: A Critical History of the U.S. Base in Cuba (Radical History) by David Deutschmann...

"What use this virtual theft of sovereign territory has been put to eventually is the shame and disgrace of the United States, and also of the contemporary world, which, intimidated by US power, turns a blind eye to the prison that has been blatantly established in someone else's country."-Noam Chomsky, Nadine Gordimer, Rigoberta Mench, Adolfo Prez Esquivel, and Salim Lamrani

How is it possible for the United States to still control a large slice of territory on the island of Cuba?

This book offers a unique history of the US base of Guantnamo, seized during the Spanish-American War in the nineteenth century. Since the 1959 Cuban Revolution, the base has aggravated US-Cuban relations and has been continuously (but unsuccessfully) challenged as a violation of Cuba's sovereignty. The Cuban government still refuses to cash the rental checks sent each year by Washington.

Documenting the history of the base and some of the many conflicts that have flared up on its perimeter, where Cuban and US soldiers have guard posts just meters apart, this book also explores the legal, political, and other issues surrounding the continued US occupation of the territory and the indefinite detention of "enemy combatants" captured in the "war on terror."

The book features a comprehensive chronology of the base's history and extensive appendices, including some key historical documents through which Washington justifies its continued hold over the territory.
