From West Africa to the former Yugoslavia, in every global hot spot a private army waits, ready to step into the fray. Professional soldiers of fortune have always existed--but now they're on the brink of playing a new role in world affairs. A former mercenary takes a hard look at the conflicts presently raging, contrasting the success of these armies in achieving peace with the often inept and confused actions of the United Nations. A sure-to-be controversial account.

Synopsis:

With the thawing of the Cold War, the resurgence of ethnic nationalism, and the increasing power of transnational companies, a void exists in the maintenance of peace and security in the new world order. Incorporated, registered, and privately owned 'armies' now go where the UN and the rest of the world's powers fear to tread. In this controversial book, Davis tears away the veil obscuring this shadowy world and reveals the hidden forces that are certain to become ever more influential in years to come stabilising - or destablllsing - world peace.

About the Author:

James Davis, himself active in the international security industry, wrote about his experience as a UN peacekeeper in Africa and former Yugoslavia in his critically acclaimed first book, The Sharp End.
