These weapons are designed to maim soldiers, but instead, most victims are civilians, especially the rural poor.

Antipersonnel land mines represent an expensive legacy of twentieth-century warfare - one we have not yet eradicated: More than a million new mines are laid each year, far more than can be removed with todays technology. Philip C. Winslow draws on his years as a foreign correspondent in the Middle East, the Balkans, and Africa to show us the human effects of this calamity.

Winslow also writes about the Campaign to Ban Landmines and the ways in which the dragons teeth might finally be pulled from the earth so that it can be restored to those who live on it.
