Overview

An Imperfect Offering: Humanitarian Action for the Twenty-First Century

From one of the world's greatest humanitarian activists comes a searing personal memoir that is also an urgent call to confront suffering in all its many forms.

Having seen things we hope never to see, confronted suffering, dispassion, and evil we hope never to encounter, James Orbinski still believes in "the good we can be if we so choose." Recounting stories from his own experience, embodied in which are warnings, hope, and lessons in how we can inject humanitarian activity into our lives, An Imperfect Offering is invaluable reading for anyone who feels he or she can make a difference.

I gave this book as a gift to my medical student cousin. She really enjoys it.

this is an excellent account of a field doctor's experience. i recommend it to anyone and everyone. it takes a very skilled, informed, and passionate person to write such an excellent novel. this book should be considered essential reading for those who wish to go into the medical field, or even people who simply wish to try to understand the human struggle for peace, health, and resolve to conflicts. once again, this book is riviting.
