Living with Landmines: From International Treaty to Reality


Manufacturer: Black Rose Books

Product Information

"Living with Landmines analyzes, in detail, the dangerous misconception that the world's landmine problem has been solved. It uncovers some good news, and some news that is very bad indeed. On the ond hand, govenrments, the UN and a few dedicated NGOs have devised reliable techniques for cleaning up the millions of landmines already in place around the world, and these techniques are safe and effective. The bad news is that they will never be able to finish the job. The system now in place relies entirely on foreign aid for funding and technical support, but the cleanup effort will take more than a century. It is inconceivable that the essential support can be maintained until the job is done.
...Is there a de-mining technology which will allow faster, more affordable de-mining under the control of the farmers themselves? Living with Landminessuggests that there is one."
