The True Cost of Conflict is the first book to show in clear and accessible terms the vast price of conflict to the human race. The result of a unique collaboration among six international humanitarian organizations, this book reveals not only the numberof deaths and injuries resulting from war, but also the less-publicized consequences, such as the extreme economic damage incurred by both the participants and other communities, the dire social and developmental damage, and the environmental damage, which are often ignored in calculating the ravages of war. The seven conflicts examined in detail are: (a) the Gulf War; (b) Indonesia's invasion of East Timor; (c) the civil war in Mozambique; (d) The civil war in Sudan; (e) the guerrilla war in Peru; (f) the struggle for independence in Kashmir; and (g) the war in former Yugoslavia.
