This title covers topics ranging from Halliburton's vital mission as the logistical backbone of the U.S. occupation in Iraq - without it there could be no war or occupation - to its role in covering up gang-rape among its personnel in Baghdad. "Halliburton's Army" is a devastating expose of corporate malfeasance and political cronyism. In shocking detail it shows how Halliburton and its former subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR) really do business in Iraq, and around the world. Pratap Chatterjee-one of the world's leading authorities on corporate crime, fraud, and corruption-shows how Halliburton/KBR won, and then lost, its contract in Iraq. He brings us inside the Pentagon meetings, where senior officials made the decision to send Halliburton to Iraq, and explains what favours Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld did for the company. He travels to Afghanistan, Kuwait, Iraq, Turkey, Uzbekistan, the United Arab Emirates, and former Yugoslavia to describe firsthand the freewheeling ways of the company and its myriad subcontractors: from bribes, graft, skimming, offshore subsidiaries, and executives leading the high life with smuggled alcohol in Kuwait to racing yachts in Thailand. "Halliburtons Army" is a hair-raising investigation into one of the world's most lethal corporations-essential reading for anyone concerned about the nexus of private companies, government, and war.

'In a calm and measured but insistent voice, Chatterjee charts the pattern of wrongdoing built into KBR from its origins in the late Thirties... If the dust finally does settle over Iraq, while moving onto Afghanistan, the new secretary of state may well find many more questions to ask about the company's conduct in recent years. President Obama's track record suggests that her boss too will be wanting some answers. Anyone reading this important book will be demanding answers too.' --The Telegraph, March 7, 2009
