"The strength of this combined work is the multiple subjects covered within it, which give an insight into many of the key issues from a number of viewpoints." - Iain Gibson, RUSI Journal "The books succeeds in evoking further examination from its broad audience by organizing expert analysis and deftly capturing the contractor dynamics that will affect how the nation projects power abroad and how it will be perceived in so doing." - Lt. Curtis Nickel, US Naval Institute Proceedings "This book brings together several relevant views on a very important contemporary issue. It provides a foundation for the development of new theory by offering a way to "see" the challenges associated with the contemporary use of contractors in support of U.S. expeditionary operations." - Claude Christianson, LtGen, US Army (Retired) "In the cacophony of books about military operations since 9/11, Contractors and War is truly a standout. Not only are the contributors authentic experts, they avoid the platitudes that mar lesser efforts, and instead sink their teeth into the toughest issues. This book is a 'must-have' for any serious practitioner or policy maker interested in the way the US has worked - and will work - with contractors in 21st century operations." - Charles J. Dunlap, Jr., Maj. Gen. USAF (Ret.), Executive Director, Center on Law, Ethics and National Security, Duke University "The US military's increasing dependence on contractors raises questions of accountability that go far beyond episodic outrage at the misconduct of individuals. Contractors and War offers thoughtful analysis of the diminishing range of activities that remain inherently governmental - as well as the opportunities and the costs of the privatization of US power." - Simon Chesterman, Dean, National University of Singapore Faculty of Law and Global Professor, New York University Faculty of Law
