Description


War is no longer waged only by national militaries. In China, Russia, and the Middle East, there is a shift to a new anarchy where might makes right, but with new tools: private intelligence outfits, rent-an-army soldiers, and cyber mercenaries for hire. These groups profit from chaos, while accountability, transparency, and peace seem elusive.
