Description: From Rwanda to Afghanistan, from Sudan to Iraq, this devastating expose shows how the humanitarian aid industry, the media and warmongers are locked in a cycle of mutual dependency on battlefields around the world. 'The pages of this necessary but contentious book burn with a righteous moral anger about the contradictions and tensions of delivering humanitarian aid in conflict zones. Polman's pacy, readable and concise book is full of vivid and disturbing anecdotes' Daily Telegraph 'One of the finest reporting journalists of the modern age - Polman is gutsy, intellectually penetrating and far from naive' Evening Standard 'Polman shines a light on the multibillion dollar juggernaut that is today's humanitarian aid network. A disturbing account that raises profound questions' Financial Times 'A withering catalogue of corruption, incompetence and an aid industry that lives in unholy symbiosis with politicians and the military' Scotsman 'Cool, brusque, fearless. A marvellous account' Guardian
