To Walk Without Fear: The Global Movement to Ban Landmines

Editor(s): Maxwell A. Cameron, Robert J. Lawson, Brian W. Tomlin

Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1998, pp. 512

This book was published soon after December 1997, when over 120 states (excluding the USA, Russia, China, India and  Pakistan) signed the Ottawa Convention to ban production, stockpiling and use of anti-personnel mines. It provides a wide ranging survey of both the global campaign and the diplomatic moves culminating in  the 'Ottawa process', which, under Canadian government leadership, resulted in the treaty.  There are contributions from leading campaigners, diplomats and academics.
