BEYOND THE GREEN ZONE: "Every conflict spawns a handful of journalists who are willing to not only brave the war zone but to seek out the stories ignored by the press pack. The Iraq War has brought us Dahr Jamail…. I suspect Jamail’s account will prove an enduring document of what really happened during the chaotic years of occupation, and how it transformed ordinary Iraqis…. If years from now, Americans are willing to read any books about the war, this one should be among them it tells everything."

-Mother Jones Magazine

BLACKWATER "Blackwater is the utterly gripping and explosive story of how the Bush Administration has spent hundreds of millions of public dollars building a parallel corporate army, an army so loyal to far right causes it constitutes nothing less than a Republican Guard. The most important and chilling book about the death throes of U.S. democracy you will read in years and a triumph of investigative reporting."

–Naomi Klein, author No Logo and The Shock Doctrine

Jamail’s dispatches and hard news stories have been translated into French, Polish, German, Dutch, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Chinese, Arabic, and Turkish.

Scahill has reported extensively from Iraq, the former Yugoslavia, and Nigeria. He is currently a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute. Traveling around the hurricane zone in the wake of Katrina, Scahill exposed the presence of Blackwater mercenaries in New Orleans and his reporting sparked a Congressional inquiry, an internal Department of Homeland Security investigation, and a local movement to stop Blackwater West, a planned 800-acre private military training-base in a rural town just miles from the California/Mexico border.

Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army, has been featured on NPR Fresh Air with Terry Gross, C-Span Book TV, Democracy Now!, and CNN. Scahill has recently been a guest on PBS Bill Moyer’s Journal, MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann and HBO Real Time with Bill Maher
