To Walk the Earth in Safety (2006)

Report cover:  To Walk the Earth in Safety"This sixth edition of To Walk the Earth in Safety summarizes the accomplishments of the interagency U.S. Humanitarian Mine Action Program for fiscal years 2004 and 2005. In a strict sense, it is a combined annual report for two years on what was then and still is the world's largest such program. But it is also a chapter in a real-life story that has a beginning, middle, and, we now know because of more than fifteen years of practical experience, an end." -- Assistant Secretary for Political-Military Affairs John Hillen
