"Extremely well written and clear, Humanitarian Business is an excellent introduction to modern humanitarianism."
Stephen Hopgood, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London
"Thomas G. Weiss exposes the increasingly competitive nature of the humanitarian world as well as the ways in which states and other actors seek to manipulate emergency relief. An essential analysis of the contemporary aid industry."
Jeff Crisp, Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees
"Thomas G. Weiss has made an outstanding contribution to the understanding and policymaking of humanitarian action for more than twenty-five years. In this new book, he continues to do so by challenging international humanitarians and their government donors to think about their profession as a business."
Hugo Slim, Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict, University of Oxford
