2009 PRATAP CHATTERLEE — Pratap Chatterlee’s Halliburton’s Army: How a Well-Connected Texas Company Revolutionized the Way America Makes War, published by Nation Books, was written up in Vanity Fair and praised in other reviews. The book received FIJ’S 2005 Robert I. Friedman award.
“From Halliburton’s vital mission as the logistical backbone of the U.S. occupation in Iraq—without it there could be no war or occupation—to its role in covering up gang-rape among its personnel in Baghdad, Halliburton’s Army is a devastating exposé of corporate malfeasance and political cronyism. In shocking detail it shows how Halliburton and its former subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR) really do business in Iraq, and around the world. “
