La description:

Blank Spots on the Map is an expos? of an empire that continues to grow every year-an empire that doesn't even exist. It is the adventurous, insightful, and often chilling story of a road trip through a shadow nation of state secrets, clandestine military bases, ultrasecret black sites, hidden laboratories, and top secret agencies that make up what insiders call the "black world." Here, geographer and provocateur Trevor Paglen invades this vast wilderness of mirrors and deception. He knocks on the doors of CIA prisons, stakes out the Groom Lake covert air base in Nevada from a mountaintop thirty miles away, dissects the Defense Department's multibillion-dollar black budget, and travels across the globe to interview those who live On the edges of these blank spots. Whether Paglen reports from a hotel room in Vegas, the Washington, D.C., suburbs, a secret prison in Kabul, or a trailer in Shoshone Indian territory, he is impassioned, rigorous, relentless-and eye-opening. And his story is a human, vivid, and telling portrait of a ballooning national mistake.
