[an] illuminating book... a thorough, well-argued and pleasant to read defence of the idea of contracted warfare.
*Ethical Perspectives 18, no.2*

Baker's arguments are well supported with sufficient historical context and anecdotal evidence where necessary... The author's case is an important and timely one, and it works well on a number of levels... this book is a call for clarity on the subject and a spark for interesting conversation on the topics of ethics of warfare, morality and the market and humanitarian intervention.
*Political Studies Review Vol. 10*
