Abstract

This book chapter  in the edited volume (Re)Masculinizing Security? Gender and Private Military and Security Companies, is one of thirteen case studies on violent subjects, reason, and emotion demonstrate different ways in which we understand political violence, security, resistance, power, and agency, and how we make sense of gender. This and the other articles shows that gender is not a "security issue," but tells us a lot about how, why and when certain subjects are written as security concerns.  The chapter discusses the issues of the increasing importance of private security companies in the current wars of gloablization and with them the (re)masculinization of security, because most employees of these comanpies are men.
