Editorial Reviews


Malcolm Patterson has written an eminently readable and thought-provoking book that forces us to reconsider again our ideas about peacekeeping and whether, after the debacles in Somalia, Rwanda and the Congo, it is now time to consider privatising peacekeeping. Essential reading for anyone with an interest in understanding how the market might impact on peacekeeping operations. - Dr Christopher Kinsey, Defence Studies Department, King's College London at the Joint Command and Staff College, Defence Academy of the UK

'Privatising Peace is exceptional and offers a clear account of the problem, lucid analysis of the PMC industry, and a concrete solution. Patterson's examination of the industry is worth the price of admission alone, as it is current and well researched. Overall, this book is a timely and valuable contribution to the field.' - Sean McFate, Assistant Professor, College of International Security Affairs, National Defense University, USA
