Reviews

Nadine Gordimer A wake-up, shake-up for those of us who see unquestionable humanitarianism as the disinterested answer to conflict and poverty in our millennium world.
Los Angeles Times Book Review One of the 10 best nonfiction books of the year.
The Wall Street Journal A withering, thought-provoking study.
The New York Times Book Review Hardheaded, sophisticated, and urgent.
Time A ruthlessly lucid book...hard, intelligent analysis.
Brian Urquhart former Undersecretary General of the United Nations A Bed for the Night provides an excellent antidote to the hollow clichΓ©s and generalizations that often blur and distort the horribly real problems of helping the world's most afflicted people.
