Overview

History and Hope: The International Humanitarian Reader provides a better understanding--both within and outside academia--of the multifaceted demands posed by humanitarian assistance programs.

Each selected chapter has been edited and updated. In addition, the series editor, Kevin M. Cahill, M.D., has written, among other chapters, an introductory essay explaining the academic evolution of the discipline of humanitarian assistance.
