Utilizing private contractors is essential to American interests, but it must be done right, asserts international relations scholar Allison Stanger, who presents a bold vision of what that approach should be. 'As we debate how many more troops to dispatch to Afghanistan, it might be a good time to also debate just how far we've already gone in hiring private contractors to do jobs that the State Department, Pentagon and C.I.A. once did on their own. A good place to start is with . . . One Nation Under Contract.'-Thomas Friedman, New York Times 'A fascinating book about military contractors and just how big a role they play in U.S. defense policy.'- Fareed Zakaria, CNN's GPS (Book of the Week) 'The real strength of this superb book is not what it reveals, as stunning as that may be, but how well [Stanger] assimilates the changed circumstances of modern-day governance and simply addresses what now must be done. . . . Stanger deserves a gold medal for this book.'-Mickey Edwards, Boston Globe 'Powerfully argued . . . provocative. . . . By shining a light on what she calls America's 'shadow government,' [Stanger] does us the great favor of triggering a long overdue political debate.'- Thomas P.M. Barnett, World Politics Review
