This deadly challenge will test him to the limits of his endurance.

Warrior cultures throughout history have developed unique codes that restrict their behavior and set them apart from the rest of society. But what possible reason could a warrior have for accepting such restraints? Why should those whose profession can force them into hellish kill-or-be-killed conditions care about such lofty concepts as honor, courage, nobility, duty, and sacrifice? And why should it matter so much to the warriors themselves that they be something more than mere murderers? The Code of the Warrior tackles these timely issues and takes the reader on a tour of warrior cultures and their values, from the ancient Greeks and Romans to the "barbaric" Vikings and Celts, from legendary chivalric knights to Native American tribesmen, from Chinese warrior monks pursuing enlightenment to Japanese samurai practicing death. Drawing these rich traditions up to the present, the author quests for a code for the warriors of today, as they do battle in asymmetric conflicts against unconventional forces and the scourge of global terrorism

Some have claimed that War is too important to be left to the generals, but P. W. Singer asks What about the business executives? Breaking out of the guns-for-hire mold of traditional mercenaries, corporations now sell skills and services that until recently only state militaries possessed. Their products range from trained commando teams to strategic advice from generals. This new Privatized Military Industry encompasses hundreds of companies, thousands of employees, and billions of dollars in revenue. Whether as proxies or suppliers, such firms have participated in wars in Africa, Asia, the Balkans, and Latin America. More recently, they have become a key element in U.S. military operations. Private corporations working for profit now sway the course of national and international conflict, but the consequences have been little explored. In this book, Singer provides the first account of the military services industry and its broader implications. Corporate Warriors includes a description of how the business works, as well as portraits of each of the basic types of companies: military providers that offer troops for tactical operations; military consultants that supply expert advice and training; and military support companies that sell logistics, intelligence, and engineering. In an updated edition of P. W. Singer's classic account of the military services industry and its broader implications, the author describes the continuing importance of that industry in the Iraq War. This conflict has amply borne out Singer's argument that the privatization of warfare allows startling new capabilities and efficiencies in the ways that war is carried out. At the same time, however, Singer finds that the introduction of the profit motive onto the battlefield raises troubling questions--for democracy, for ethics, for management, for human rights, and for national security.

There is an arduous path that warriors walk, no matter where they live in the world. True warriors seek to learn what serves them and what does not, what is selfish and what is selfless, and how to decide in favor of light over dark. Like everyone else, the warrior owns the consequences, good or bad. In a how-to manual, modern-day warrior Rich Hungerford offers guidance and support to a new era of warriors desiring to positively impact the world while navigating the challenges of life. Intertwined with his often deeply-personal insights gathered from his own life journey is philosophical guidance on how to successfully walk the warriors’ path. Within the three stages of the journey, Hungerford candidly describes both the difficulties and rewards that accompany a warrior’s commitment to personal growth, provides an awareness of the importance of developing the mind, body, and spirit along the way, and encourages the acceptance of and surrender to a personal destiny with grace. The Warrior and the Wolf shares wisdom, insights, and advice for warriors seeking guidance on how to walk a spiritual path to develop the higher self, live true, and truly live.
