One of the defining institutions of the 20th century – and into the 21st – has been the concentration camp, a place where people are held outside the normal legal process. Using documentary sources from four continents and interviews with survivors, this first global history of the camps traces their origin – first established by the Spanish in Cuba in 1896 – through their use by the British in the Boer War, their unprecedented development by the Nazis and Soviets, and their modern counterpart at Guantánamo Bay.
