The April 2011 issue of Race & Class leads with a major review article of Guantánamo literature by Barbara Harlow, foregrounding works by Moazzam Begg, Victoria Brittain, Gillian Slovo, Mahvish Rukshana Khan, Anna Perera, Clive Stafford Smith et al and examining what they reveal about the nature, imperatives and relationship to international law of the US state.
‘Taking Baghdad: some US Marine memoirs of the invasion of Iraq’ an article by John Newsinger neatly complements ‘Extraordinary renditions: tales of Guantánamo’ by Harlow.
