One of the defining institutions of the 20th century, and into the 21st, has been the concentration camp, 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 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.
