One Nation Under Contract: The Outsourcing of American Power
Thu, May 11, 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM CDT
In her book One Nation Under Contract, international relations scholar (and Elmhurst College alumna) Allison Stanger documents in stunning detail the extent to which the U.S. has outsourced national security and foreign policy functions to private contractors. Retired Marine Corps Gen. Anthony Zinni calls the book "a superb work … for those who want to get past the myths and truly understand this hot topic.” Stanger, a professor of international politics and economics at Middlebury College, also is the author of the forthcoming Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Leaks: The Story of Whistleblowing in America.
