The history of United Nations peacekeeping is largely one of failure. This book puts a case for augmenting ad hoc peacekeepers with competent contract labour; and within the constraints of a new legal regime, supporting future operations with well-trained contractors who might subdue by force those who inflict gross human rights abuses on others.

MALCOLM HUGH PATTERSON is an Australian lawyer who teaches International Law and International Relations. Since being awarded his PhD from the University of Cambridge, he has taught at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, published in the Journal of Conflict and Security Law and contributed a chapter to The Global Arms Trade. He is presently co-editing a collection of American essays to be published in the forthcoming book Contractors and War.
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
