"The government’s genie—the outsourcing of military support, diplomatic security, foreign aid, information technology, and, well, governance—won’t return to the bottle. Dickinson’s vision of a modern, privatized government, that not only promotes critical public values, but also expends resources efficiently and responsibly, is as thought-provoking as it is refreshing."—Steven L. Schooner, George Washington University

"Dickinson does a superb job of summarizing the issues connected with using private corporations to perform public functions overseas. . . . Written in a style accessible to all interested readers, Outsourcing War and Peace is a model of how lessons from the practice of law can inform and improve the conduct of foreign affairs. Highly recommended."—R.A. Strong, Choice
