Featured New Book: Guantanamo

Guantanamo : An American History by Jonathan M. Hansen presents the first complete account of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, from the imperial expansion plans of the colonist and British sailor Lawrence Washington (half-brother of the future president) onward. It highlights how, in many ways, Guantanamo remains more quintessentially American than America itself: a distillation of the idealism and arrogance.

Truly more than a book about Guantanamo Bay, this is a story about the making of modern America, one that places post 9/11 America in its proper historical context.
