The concentrations camps that existed in the colonised world at the turn of the 20th Century are a vivid reminder of the atrocities committed by imperial powers on indigenous populations. This study explores British, American and Spanish camp cultures, analysing debates over their legitimacy and current discussions on retributive justice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'In this impressively researched and deftly argued work, Marouf Hasian, Jr. demonstrates the instrumental function of rhetoric in shaping and reshaping (post)colonial pasts, presents, and futures. The author's theoretically adept, meticulously documented case analyses throw light on the 'amnesiac practices' that continue to fuel sociopolitical imaginaries. Hasian's book performs a timely intervention in humanitarian scholarship'

D. Robert DeChaine, California State University, Los Angeles, USA

'Marouf Hasian offers an innovative approach to thinking about (post)colonialism, and its relationship to memory. In his careful analysis of each case study from very different political and historical contexts, Hasian makes important connections between how memory is rhetorically constructed in the context of camps. The framework of 'camps' advances our understanding of (post)colonialism and memory. This book is a significant contribution to this area of inquiry.'

Tom Nakayama, Northeastern University, USA
