Jeremy Scahill is an investigative reporter and National Security Correspondent for The Nation magazine. His first book, Blackwater, published by Nation Books in 2007, looks at how this mercenary company became the nation’s pre-eminent military contractor. His second book, Dirty Wars, to be released on April 23, 2013, takes us inside America’s new covert wars and follows the consequences of the declaration that “the world is a battlefield.” Scahill uncovers the most important foreign policy story of our time, as he reports from the frontlines of Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, and beyond in this high-stakes investigation.
