Allison Stanger is Chair of the Political Science Department at Middlebury College.
"'As governments around the world contract out important tasks to private corporations, Allison Stanger has asked the key question: how do citizens reestablish effective oversight over private-public partnerships? One Nation Under Contract is a clarion call to bring the business of government under more effective public control.' Michael Ignatieff, Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada 'As we debate how many more troops to dispatch to Afghanistan, it might be a good time to also debate just how far we've already gone in hiring private contractors to do jobs that the State Department, Pentagon and C.I.A. once did on their own. A good place to start is with... One Nation Under Contract.' Thomas Friedman, New York Times"
