In 1971 the inhabitants of Diego Garcia, a small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, a place too small to find on a map and one of the last paradisical outposts of the Empire, were suddenly evicted from their homes to make way for a US military base. A trenchant critique of modern civilization, A Lesser Dependency movingly describes how one family’s tropical heaven became hell.
