  • Description or summary of the book: In a work that combines ingenious journalism and bizarrely encoded art, author/photographer/investigator Trevor Paglen uncovers 75 never-before-seen-in-public military patches that reveal a bizarre secret world of the American military. Paglen investigates classified weapons projects and intelligence operations by examining their own imagery and jargon, disclosing new facts about important classified military units?here known by peculiar names (?Goat Suckers,? ?None of Your Fucking Business,? ?Tastes Like Chicken?) and illustrated with occult symbols and ridiculous cartoons. The precisely photographed patches?worn by military personnel working on classified missions, such as those at the legendary Area 51?reveal much about a strange and eerie world about which little was previously known. The author has also assembled an extensive and readable guide, based on extensive interviews with military sources and government records, to the patches included here, making this volume perhaps the best available survey of the military's black world?a $27 billion industry that has quietly grown by almost 50 percent since 9/11.
