Editorial Reviews


'...provides a timely and perceptive guide to the rapidly growing global market in defence services and the outsourcing of defence research and military support activities...of interest not only to those interested in contemporary defence analysis but also to historians of the organizational context of war and warfare.' Keith Hayward, Royal Aeronautical Society, UK '...a pioneering and important study of the new business of war. Not only does it tackle fundamental issues that lie behind terms such as the "privatization" and "outsourcing" of defence but, through a wealth of new sources and material, this fascinating study uncovers the remarkable extent of the private business of war and the technological change that has driven it...required reading not only for students and scholars of war, but most of all for policy-makers in the field.' John Keiger, University of Salford, UK 'While much attention is currently directed towards armed contractors, War as Business shines a light on a relatively unexplored area of defense privatization involving technology, research, and service contracting , and in so doing effectively reveals an evolving public-private relationship that is just as unique, complex, and controversial. This book expands our knowledge as to who provides for national defense and at what costs, both financial and normative.' Christopher Spearin, Canadian Forces College, Canada 'The book is very well researched and well laid out. The complexity of the phenomenon of privatization and its implications for national and international security have been discussed in a logical manner...the book is very interesting and informative. An excellent guide for those contemplating increased use of contractors for outsourcing of military services.' USI Journal '...contributes to security studies by offering an analysis of the privatization of services linked to security and defence. The work contributes equally to the fields of political economy and strategic studies...War as Business deserves praise for its empirical contribution in a field where research is difficult.' Etudes Internationales
