No company in our time has been as mysterious or as controversial as Blackwater. Founded by former Navy SEAL Erik Prince in 1997, it recruited special forces veterans and others with the skills and courage to take on the riskiest security jobs in the world. As its reputation grew, government demand for its services escalated, and Blackwater's men eventually completed nearly one hundred thousand missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Both the Bush and Obama administrations found the company indispensible. It sounds like a classic startup success story, except for one problem: Blackwater has been demonized around the world. From uninformed news coverage to grossly distorted fictional portrayals, Blackwater employees have been smeared as mercenaries, profiteers, jackbooted thugs, and worse. Because of the secrecy requirements of Blackwater's contracts with the Pentagon, the State Department, and the CIA, Prince was unable to speak out when his company's opponents spread false information. But now he's able to tell the full and often shocking story of Blackwater's rise and fall. In Civilian Warriors, Prince pulls no punches and spares no details. He explains his original goal of building an elite center for military and law enforcement training. He recounts how the company shifted gears after 9/11. He honors our troops while challenging the Pentagon's top leadership. And he reveals why highly efficient private military contractors have been essential to running our armed forces, since long before Blackwater came along. Above all, Prince debunks myths about Blackwater that spread while he was forced to remain silent-myths that tarnished the memory of men who gave their lives for their country but never got the recognition they deserved. He reveals new information about some of the biggest controversies of the War on Terror, including: • The true story of the Nisour Square massacre in Baghdad. • The actual details of Blackwater's so-called impunity in Iraq. • The events leading up to the televised deaths of Blackwater contractors in Fallujah. Prince doesn't pretend to be perfect, and he doesn't hide the sometimes painful details of his private life. But he has done a great public service by setting the record straight. His book reads like a thriller but is too improbable to be fiction.

“CIVILIAN WARRIORS, CIVILIAN HEALERS” is an honest account of the destruction of the world's busiest emergency response system. New York City's 911 System takes more than one million calls a year, making in the most active EMS in the world, and Jim Schrang worked in it more than twenty years: on the streets as a paramedic, under the politics of the Chiefs, and as a sometimes whistleblower whose predictions of disaster rubbed the brass wrong, even when he turned out to be right. This is his unique account of the disastrous changes that have taken place in NY EMS since FDNY took over. Chronicled here are the scandals we never hear about, from the turf battles that keep units underfunded to the sexual harassment suits filed by female employees, from the worker's comp scams to the shameful treatment of EMS workers, one of whom dies. Another lingers near death while still waiting for FDNY to acknowledge her claim for an illness caught on the job; even the doctors who first treated her denies any acknowledge of the case, her files disappear in a "fire" where nothing else seems to be touched, and she is left with no proof that her condition ever existed except the doctor's name on a medication bottle. It is a story at times absurd and sometimes outrageous, but its consequences are deadly. Starting from scenes of life on the streets, Schrang takes us through the long series of mis-steps EMS was sent through by the Giuliani administration, culminating in the total unpreparedness for 9/11 that inhibited NY emergency services in the words of someone who was there. It will make you wonder just who you're trusting with your family safety.

"China's Civilian Army tells the story of China's transformation from an isolated and impoverished communist state to a global superpower from the perspective of its diplomats. In the early days of the People's Republic, diplomats were highly-disciplined, committed communists who feared revealing any weakness to the threatening capitalist world. Remarkably, the model that revolutionary leader Zhou Enlai established continues to this day despite the massive changes the country has undergone in recent decades. Even today, Chinese diplomats work in pairs so that one can always watch the other for signs of ideological impurity. China's Civilian Army charts the history of China's diplomatic corps from its earliest days through to the present, drawing on the memoirs of more than a hundred retired diplomats and dozens of interviews"--

In todays often violent world, accepting the warrior path as a way of life is not the prerogative of the modern soldier. We now have warriors in every walk of life, civilian warriors, law enforcement warriors, executive protection warriors, and of course, military warriors. This first volume gives insight into how being a modern warrior impacts our everyday life, how we live through physical and mental conditioning, awareness of personal, mobile, and home security for example. The chapters not only supply the reader with information but require the reader to continually question themselves as they journey along the warrior path.

This book explores the use of deadly force by private security companies during the Iraq War. The work focuses on and compares the activities of the US companies Blackwater and Dyncorp. Despite sharing several important characteristics, such as working for the same client (the US State Department) during the same time period, the employees of Blackwater fired their weapons far more often, and killed and seriously injured far more people in Iraq than their counterparts in DynCorp. In order to explain this disparity, the book undertakes the most comprehensive analysis ever attempted on the use of violence by the employees of these firms. Based on extensive empirical research, it offers a credible explanation for this difference: Blackwater maintained a relatively bellicose military culture that placed strong emphasis on norms encouraging its personnel to exercise personal initiative, proactive use of force, and an exclusive approach to security, which, together, motivated its personnel to use violence quite freely against anyone they suspected of posing a threat. Specifically, Blackwater’s military culture motivated its personnel to fire upon suspected threats more quickly, at greater distances, and with a greater quantity of bullets, and to more readily abandon the people they shot at when compared to DynCorp’s personnel, who maintained a military culture that encouraged far less violent behaviour. Utilizing the Private Security Company Violent Incident Dataset (PSCVID), created by the author in 2012, the book draws upon data on hundreds of violent incidents involving private security personnel in Iraq to identify trends in the behaviour exhibited by the employees of different firms. Based on this rich and original empirical data, the book provides the definitive study of contemporary private security personnel in the Iraq War. This book will be of much interest to students of the Iraq War, Private Security Companies, Military Studies, War and Conflict Studies and IR in general.
