"Private Armed Forces and Global Security: A Reference Handbook" is the first book to provide a comprehensive, yet entirely accessible survey of private military groups involved in conflicts around the globe. Organized into four themes, it covers: the history of private military forces since 1600; the main contemporary players and their defining characteristics; the environments in which private armed forces operate; and, an analysis of the rationale behind privatizing security. This timely and well-researched volume goes beyond conventional knowledge, offering both a theoretical approach and a new practical perspective to advance the understanding of the ongoing climate of global instability and the relevant players within it. Numerous modern-day examples help readers grasp the scope of private military groups and their deployment worldwide.
