Beschreibung

Diego Garcia is a pivotal US base for all Middle East operations. This book describes its evolution from a secret US-UK bilateral deal in 1966 and the deportation of the native population in the 70s to its new role in Guantánamo-style 'renditions' and the impact of miltary construction on its environment.

"With an invaluable collection of relevant treaties and government documents provided as an addendum, Sand's book is a quintessential work for those interested in acquiring information on the legal basis of the American base on the island." - Environment and Planning D: Society and Space

'...impressive in terms of its empirical research...Sand provides a comprehensive review of the extant literature and archival records on the Chagos Islands, as well as the myriad legal instruments -both domestic and international - that relate to the archipelago.' - African Affairs
