Nation Books describes “Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army” as “the unauthorized story of the epic rise of one of the most powerful and secretive forces to emergefrom the U.S. military-industrial complex. Scahill chronicles both the foreign and domestic reach of Blackwater, from the blood-soaked streets of Iraq...to the chambers of power in Washington where Blackwater executives are welcomed as new heroes in the war on terror...The Bush administration hails Blackwater as a revolution in military affairs; others see its rise as nothing less than a dire threat to American democracy.” View Full Press Release
