"Gives the statistics a painfully human face." <BR><BR>—The Washington Post Book World <BR><BR> <BR><BR>Philip Winslow offers the most complete and compelling book on land mines—the issue brought to world attention with the awarding of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize to the Campaign to Ban Land Mines. He draws on his years as a foreign correspondent in the Middle East, the Balkans, and Africa, and journeys into rural Angola, where he introduces us to the victims, the deminers, and the way land mines destroy economies and infrastructures. He also writes about the Campaign to Ban Land Mines and the ways we might finally pull the "dragon's teeth" from the earth, to restore it to those who live there. <BR>"Winslow's fine book puts names and faces to the victims and begs us to beware. Only such harrowing testimony and eloquent pleading will rid us of this scourge."<BR><BR><BR>—William F. Schulz, executive director, Amnesty International <BR>"Winslow's moving and powerful book shows why some weapons are so insidious that they do not belong in the arsenals of civilized nations. A land mine is such a weapon. It should be banished from the earth." <BR><BR><BR>—U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy <BR>"Makes a strong case that such a ban—championed by the late Princess Diana—is a necessity."<BR><BR><BR>—Boston Herald <BR>"A thoughtful, sometimes harrowing portrait." <BR><BR><BR>—Utne Reader
