Guantanamo reviewed at decomP

Guantanamo-Frank-Smith-Vanessa-Place-Cover-thumbIn a series of six notes, Spencer Dew considers Frank Smith’s Guantanamo at decomP Magazine. Dew considers the ambiguities and complexities Smith’s book delves into:

This is not a book about innocence, nor is it a book about guilt. The interrogated are surprised by certain accusations, offer alternate explanations and stories; the interrogators are in turn surprised, offer evidence and interpretations, alternate stories. This is, surely, a book about power relations, but these power relations are complex.
