Meticulously researched and fascinating ... Scahill does a fine job * Sunday Times * Scahill deserves commendation. * New Statesman * Blackwater is the utterly gripping and explosive story of how the Bush Administration has spent hundreds of millions of public dollars building a parallel corporate army, an army so loyal to far right causes it constitutes nothing less than a Republican Guard. The most important and chilling book about the death throes of U.S. democracy you will read in years and a triumph of investigative reporting. -- Naomi Klein, author No Logo An explosive piece of investigative journalism -- Ben Myers * Shortlist * Of all the insane Bush privatization efforts, none is more frightening than the corporatizing of military combat forces. Jeremy Scahill admirably exposes a devastating example of this sinister scheme. -- Michael Moore, Academy Award Winning Director A powerful argument against the privatisation of war... exemplary... If the job of writing about "the rise of the world's most powerful mercenary army" seems mightily ambitious, it has been undertaken by just the right person... he's the sort of writer who sets out the evidence and lets us make up our own minds * Big Issue * Revelatory -- Aimee Shalan * Guardian * An exhaustively well-researched expose -- Alastair Mabbott * Herald * [A] revealing study -- Tom Widger * Sunday Tribune *
