The author, a Notre Dame associate professor of anthropology, looks at the black markets and multi-trillion-dollar financial networks that underwrite wars today. From scoundrels and profiteers to everyday victims, the book shines a light on aspects of war generally not found in today’s media coverage. Includes 19 black-and-white photos.
