520    In this groundbreaking book of new reportage, sure to stir
       a global debate, journalist Jeremy Scahill-author of the 
       acclaimed international bestseller Blackwater-takes us 
       into the heart of the War on Terror's most dangerous 
       battlefields as he chases down the most important foreign 
       policy story of our time. From Afghanistan and Pakistan to
       Yemen, Somalia, and beyond, Scahill speaks to the CIA 
       agents, mercenaries, and elite Special Operations Forces 
       operators who populate the dark side of American war-
       fighting. He goes deep into al Qaeda-held territory in 
       Yemen and walks the streets of Mogadishu with CIA-backed 
       warlords. We also meet the survivors of US night raids and
       drone strikes-including families of US citizens targeted 
       for assassination by their own government-who reveal the 
       human consequences of the dirty wars the United States 
       struggles to keep hidden. Written in a gripping, action-
       packed narrative nonfiction style, Dirty Wars: The World 
       is a Battlefieldreveals that, despite his pledge to bring 
       accountability to US wars and to end Bush-era abuses, 
       President Barack Obama has kept in place many of the most 
       dangerous and secret programs that thrived under his 
       predecessor. In stunning detail, Scahill exposes how Obama
       has escalated these secret US wars and has built up an 
       elite secret US military unit that answers to no one but 
       the president himself. Scahill reveals the existence of 
       previously unreported secret prisons, kidnappings, 
       assassinations, and cover-ups of covert operations gone 
       terribly wrong. In this remarkable story from the 
       frontlines of the undeclared battlefields of the War on 
       Terror, journalist Jeremy Scahill documents the new 
       paradigm of American war: fought far from any declared 
       battlefield, by units that do not officially exist, in 
       thousands of operations a month that are never publicly 
       acknowledged. The devastating picture that emerges in 
       Dirty Wars is of a secret US killing machine that has 
       grown more powerful than whatever president happens to 
       reside in the White House. Scahill argues that far from 
       keeping the United States-and the world-safe from 
       terrorism, these covert American wars ensure that the 
       terror will grow and spread.
