There are no winners in war, only losers. We have so far avoided a third world war, but across the globe regional conflicts flare up in a seemingly unstoppable cycle. Who can stand between the armed camps?
Over six decades, Martin Bell has stood in eighteen war zones – as a soldier, a reporter and a UNICEF ambassador. Now he looks back on our efforts to keep the peace since the end of the Second World War and the birth of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in the new State of Israel.
From the failures of Bosnia, Rwanda and South Sudan to nationalism’s resurgence and the distribution of alternative facts across a darkening political landscape, Bell calls for us to learn from past mistakes – before it’s too late.
We aim to dispatch all orders as quickly as we can – usually within 5-7 working days of receiving your order. Please note due to current circumstances, delivery may take longer.
In some instances, we may ship your order in more than one delivery. This will be the case if your order includes a pre-order title. For any pre-order title the product listing will state when the publishing date is.
We have a standard postage and packaging charge of £2.95 for deliveries to any UK address. We have based our standard postage and packaging charge on averaged calculations. For large orders, we reserve the right to contact you before the dispatch of your order if we find the postage cost is significantly more than our standard charge.
Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to offer international shipping.
We want you to be completely happy with everything you buy from the Borders Book Festival Online Shop.
In the unlikely event that your order arrived damaged please accept our apologies. To resolve the issue quickly please email us within fourteen days upon receipt of your order, ideally with photos of the damage to product and photos of the packaging damage to firstname.lastname@example.org
