Mercenaries and Law

Second Edition

Edited by: M.P.W. Brouwers

Mercenary activities have been an historically constant phenomenon - a phenomenon which descends from ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire. Some people refer to mercenaries as 'hired killers,' while others say that they are the 'dogs of war' or heartless 'soldiers of fortune.' This book offers an insight on the issue of mercenaries and includes the relevant international legal instruments that have been drafted on the topic.
