From the Publisher"Well researched, well documented, and challenging for all actors involved in humanitarian action...Scrutinizes today's humanitarian action and the motivation of its donors. The authors make a case for a better-coordinated multilateral approach to support a more effective and principled humanitarian response."
"Ian Smillie is Canada’s most knowledgeable expert on foreign aid. In The Charity of Nations, he joins Larry Minear to produce a donor’s guide to spending our dollars...Government decision makers and international nongovernmental organizations should pay heed, since the immensity and urgency of current conditions demand we do things differently. Smillie and Minear have a formula."
"I hope [this] becomes a standard reference in the current discussion of the humanitarian enterprise. We would all be very much the better for it."
"Much more than an indictment of a humanitarian apparatus that allows 'forgotten emergencies.' This is a timely, important, and highly readable book."
"Offers an insightful analysis of the complexities of the humanitarian enterprise. The authors' grasp of the topic is impressive."
