Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army

by

Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Scahill's liberal horror story is about the company that has deployed many of the 'private contractors' who have assisted the U.S. military in Iraq and been responsible for more than its share of death and disorder. Scahill, a regular contributor to the Nation, amps up the scare language in his study of both Blackwater and the wealthy, ultra-conservative Prince family that founded the company, but luckily, Weiner does not. With his booming baritone reined tightly in check, Weiner coolly and calmly delivers the bad news. The parade of scaremongering may grow wearying, but Weiner maintains his composure throughout, offsetting Scahill (to a degree) by virtue of his unyielding temperateness. Simultaneous release with the Nation hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 26). (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Blackwateris the dark story of the rise of a powerful mercenary army, ranging from the blood-soaked streets of Fallujah to rooftop firefights in Najaf to the hurricane-ravaged US gulf to Washington DC, where Blackwater executives are hailed as new heroes in the war on terror. This is an extraordinary expos by one of America's most exciting young radical journalists.
