Reviews

"Highly detailed... James addresses an impressive... range of social theory... and carefully weaves these concepts together... James provides a compelling, sympathetically written, complex and nuanced account."--Adia Benton "Cahiers d'Γ‰tudes Africaines "
"Highly recommended. . . by highlighting the vivi first-person accounts of female survivors, the author raises important questions about humanitarian aid, structural violence, and political insecurity, while simultaneously outlining some of the ethical quandaries arising from the uses and abuses of power."-- (05/04/2011)
"Her account is both brave and unsettling. . . . Not only instructive for anthropologists . . . but also for humanitarian aid providers who momentarily work or are planning to work in Haiti."-- (05/22/2011)
"[This] is one of the most important books on the country published in years. . . . It radiates intelligence and understanding."-- (09/14/2011)
