In a feat of daring reportage, Potter gets onto the flight deck with these outlaws and tells the story of their fearless missions. Dodging gunfire, Potter is taken from place to place by men trafficking everything from illicit weapons to emergency aid, making enemies everywhere but no reliable friends. As the world changes, we see the options for the crew first explode, then slowly diminish, until, in a desperate maneuver, they move their operations to the most lawless corners of Africa, where they operate to this day.
The story of these outlaws is a microcosm of the world since the end of the cold war: secret contracts, guerrilla foreign policy, and conflicts too thorny to be handled in public. Potter uses the story of these men to articulate an underground history of the globalized world. At once thrilling, provocative, and morally circumspect, this book is a must-listen for anyone with an interest in espionage, or in how the world works today.

Just Amazing, Beyond Interesting
Where does Outlaws, Inc rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Near the top of my non-fiction
What did you like best about this story?
The brutal truth of whats going on and our part in it.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I was just amazed at how widespread and prevalent the arms trade is . It just amazes me that this issue is not at the fore front of issues being discussed. This is a book that is a must for anyone that wants to know about all aspects of the arms trade as well as who is involved. And how its not just small time warlords in some far flung African village.
Any additional comments?
BUY IT!! I recommend it to everyone I know who reads or listens to nonfiction and fiction alike.
