Private Military Firms, (PMFs), are the wave of the future. They challenge most of our assumptions about private parties inflicting military scale violence on societies. This book examines the phenomena of the PMF from a legal-political perspective, drawing on the best of legal theory, actual legal precedents, and real cases of PMF interventions. It provides an in depth examination of the PMF as a corporate actor in the international, domestic arenas, and various efforts to control it.
