Terrorism: Documents of International and Local Control is a hardbound series that provides primary-source documents on the worldwide counter-terrorism effort. Chief among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional and Parliamentary testimony, reports by quasi-governmental organizations, and case law covering issues related to terrorism. The series also includes a subject index and other indices that guide the user through this complex area of the law. Overall, the series keeps users up to date on the panoply of terrorism issues now facing the U.S. and the world. Use of Contractors in the War Against Terrorists explores the controversial issue of defense contractors. In selecting documents for this volume and in writing expert commentary for it, General Editor Lovelace has focused almost entirely on the current U.S. military's use of contractors in Iraq. Although other books have addressed the problem of military contracting, this volume constitutes a rare combination of primary material and new commentary on this developing issue.
