Abstract: The book talks about Blackwater's role [a private compound that trains law-enforcements and special-forces operatives and provides soldiers for hire] and illustrates the difference between actual military units and gun-for-hire corporations. Blackwater was founded by Erik Prince in 1997, a US navy seal who inherited a $1.35 billion fortune and went into the business of prvate security.
This collection of insight into the privatized warfare has been well researched and documented.
