High Risk Civilian Contracting - Working in a War Torn World
A book by James Yeager
An excerpt: “When I was preparing for my first high risk civilian contracting trip to Iraq, I was not able to find a single book, web page, or other source of information that laid out what to expect or how to handle it, from the hiring process to being in-country to coming back home. This book is written to change that. This book is written to fill the knowledge gap, correct popular misconceptions, and give interested individuals a starting point regarding the world of civilian contracting. The focus of this book is getting a job with and working on personal security details (PSDs) as a civilian security contractor, but the basics can be applied to any high risk civilian contracting job.”
