Pre-Order Discount for “Foreign Aid and Landmine Clearance”

My book, Foreign Aid and Landmine Clearance: Governance, Politics and Security in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Sudan, won’t be out until the end of this year, but Amazon UK is offering a 35% discount on the book if you pre-order it now, as a part of a special sale on textbooks. Click here to buy it from Amazon UK. The following is a brief description of the book, from the publisher I.B.Tauris:

In the decade since the signing of the Ottawa Treaty, which banned the production and use of anti-personnel mines, governments have spent over $3 billion on clearing up and mitigating the security threat of mines, cluster munitions and other unexploded ordnance in the world’s current and former war zones. However, this flow of cash into regions dominated by violent social structures raises numerous political issues. Through detailed archival and field research, this book explores the politics behind the allocation and implementation of foreign aid by the US and Norway for demining in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Sudan. It is an essential resource for practitioners and policymakers working in the field of landmine clearance and for students and researchers of Development Studies and post-war reconstruction.

The book is also available on Amazon USA, but at a much higher price. Click here if you want to buy it from there anyway.

  1. Congratulations to all your achievements! I look forward to reading your book (even though it means that I get to pay the US Amazon price). Best wishes to you and all your future plans.

    • When you consider shipping from the UK to North America the cost of the book from US Amazon is only $10 more. Both offer free shipping within their territories.

  2. […] My upcoming book, which will come out next month, covers US landmine policy, particularly its foreign aid for demining, in detail. Learn more here. […]

  3. It’s a privilege to have you as a friend Matthew! I hope to read the book!
