by

The Crisis Caravan: What's Wrong with Humanitarian Aid? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her controversial, no-holds-barred exposé Linda Polman shows how a vast industry has grown up around humanitarian aid. The Crisis Caravan takes us to war zones around the globe, showing how aid operations and the humanitarian world have become a feature of military strategy. Impassioned, gripping, and even darkly absurd, journalist Linda Polman “gives some powerful examples of unconscionable assistance...a world where aid workers have become enablers of the atrocities they seek to relieve” (The Boston Globe).

About the Author

Linda Polman is an Amsterdam-based journalist who for fifteen years has reported from war zones for a range of European radio stations and newspapers. She is the author of We Did Nothing, which was shortlisted for the Lettre Ulysses Award for the Art of Reportage.
