Reviews

"Particularly timely just now... Polman finds moral hazard on display wherever aid workers are deployed. In case after case, a persuasive argument can be made that, over-all, humanitarian aid did as much or even more harm than good... Her style is brusque, hard-boiled, with a satirist's taste for gallows humor. Her basic stance is: J'accuse." --Philip Gourevitch, The New Yorker"A reporting tour de force, devastating." --The Sunday Times (London)"Marvelous, cool, brusque, fearless." --The Guardian (London)"Ms. Polman's prose is scorching." --The Economist"A disturbing account...Raises profound questions not just about the palliative efficacy of aid, but whether it fuels and prolongs conflict." --Financial Times
