Crofton Black: Artefacts of Extraordinary Rendition
Negative Publicity:Artefacts of Extraordinary Rendition, by counterterrorism investigator Crofton Black and photographer Edmund Clark, is a new book exploring the system of secret detention sites set up by the US Central Intelligence Agency to hold suspected terrorists after 9/11. It includes previously unpublished photographs and documents illuminating the network through which the covert detention program operated.
 
The work confronts the nature of contemporary warfare and the invisible mechanisms of state control and raises fundamental questions about the accountability and complicity of governments and corporations. Read more on the book here.
