‘If the scourge of landmines is ever eradicated, much of the credit must go to Rae McGrath; and this meticulous principled book reminds us why.’ John Pilger
‘Landmines and unexploded ordnance continue to kill, maim and impoverish innocent civilians in many of the world's poorest countries. Rae McGrath's authoritative book is an invaluable resource for anyone wanting to understand the impact of these persistent killers, and how best to respond to them.’ Richard Lloyd, UK Working Group on Landmines
Written by a Nobel Peace Prize co-laureate who is one of the leading voices in the anti-landmines campaign, this timely book is a comprehensive, practical guide to landmines and unexploded ordnance.
