America and Its Enemies at Guantánamo
The grant jury: Urgent, revelatory, brave investigative reporting from someone with unmatched sources in his subject area. Nowhere Land is a forensic, nuanced and devastating account of a hidden chapter in American history, one whose consequences still reverberate around the world. Like the best narrative non-fiction it reads like a novel, in this case a thriller with appalling, hard-to-credit twists and turns. We will look back at this period of history, when people could disappear into a system without trial, justice or end, and wonder how it happened and who made it possible. Golden has devoted himself to pinning down a story that many would prefer never be told, and has sacrificed much to write what must be written. A monumental achievement.
