United States and Britain in Diego Garcia : The Future of a Controversial Base Hardback
by P. Sand
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 Guantanamo-style 'renditions' and the impact of miltary construction on its environment.
