I'll be honest, I wasn't sure what to make of this book at first. It took a "unique" point of view towards prisons and concentration camps. However, the more I read, the more I saw that Mrazek actually had an ingenious point. One of his chapters highlights how concentration camps in Czechoslovakia and Indonesia actually inadvertently pooled many of those nations' best and brightest peoples, allowing them access to the best doctors and educators. I won't reveal too much more, except to say that this book really challenges you to think daringly about colonialism and power relationships.
