Overview

A Critical History of the American Red Cross, 1882-1945: The End of Noble Humanitarianism by Gwendolyn C. Shealy

The ascent of the humanitarian organization placed it in the unprecedented position of becoming an instrument of the US government, particularly of the military, during times of war, says American historian Shealy. Between wars, she continues, the Red Cross administration's preoccupation with self-image and financial status further hindered its service to the public it had once been devoted to serving. She concludes that the two forces—government prerogative and avarice—were inextricably intertwined. The text is double spaced. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
