About the Author

Graham Bound was born in the Falklands, and returned there to see for himself the profound ways in which his homeland has changed. He considers what islanders have gained and lost, the challenges they face and why they may soon be at the centre of another South Atlantic crisis.

Reviews

Though he now lives in west London, Graham, now 54, returns to his homeland often, and although he sees a very different place now to the forgotten outpost he lived in back in 1982, one thing hasn't changed: the sovereignty dispute hasn't been resolved. Argentina have never renounced their claim and tensions have risen in the past few months, with Argentine president Christina Kirchner dialing up the rhetoric and sabre-rattling, as well as imposing what Graham describes as "a very nasty economic and diplomatic offensive" which has included restrictions on flights and shipping to and from the Islands. "It really feels like a siege down there," says Graham. - Mirror Online This is a well written, and timely publication.- Britain at War
