'A profoundly humanising and moving book that inspires and provides hope' -- Nadje Al-Ali, author of Iraqi Women: Untold Stories from 1948 to the Present (Zed Books, 2007) 'Makes one want to hop on a red bus to explore each of the city's vibrant neighbourhoods - to immerse oneself in the local lives of politically engaged women in a way that enables one to grasp the lasting effects of wartime violence' -- Cynthia Enloe, author of Bananas, Beaches and Bases (University of California Press, 2014) 'Now, more than ever, it is vital to support women who have crossed borders. By listening to women from across the world who have made their homes in London, Cynthia Cockburn brings us stories that we need to hear in order to challenge divisions and build solidarity' -- Natasha Walter author of The New Feminism (Virago, 1998) and founder of Women for Refugee Women.

Cynthia Cockburn is an honorary professor at the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender, University of Warwick, and City University London. Researcher and writer in the field of gender, war and peace-making, she is active in the international women's peace movement. Her most recent books are Antimilitarism: The Political And Gender Dynamics Of Peace Movements (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012) and From Where We Stand: War, Women's Activism and Feminist Analysis (Zed Books, 2007).
