“BLACKWATER
The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful
Mercenary Army”

Jeremy Scahill, investigative journalist of The Nation magazine and a longtime correspondent and producer for Democracy Now!

Jeremy Scahill’s first book is a searing expose of Blackwater USA, the Bush administration's shadow soldiers, now operating in Iraq, Afghanistan and inside the United States.

“Jeremy Scahill’s exposé…forcefully demonstrates the grave dangers of outsourcing the government’s monopoly on the use of force.”
—Joseph Wilson, former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq:

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…”
—Naomi Klein

“The rise of this unchecked mercenary force, as Scahill understands, could presage the final stage in the collapse of American democracy.”
— Chris Hedges
