What People are Saying About This

Samantha Power

"John Norris is the rare individual who has worked on all sides of the front lines. He has done so both as a U.S. government in-house emergency responder and, more recently, as an influential, roving critic of U.S. foreign policy. But what makes Norris truly rare is that he is both a doer—a dispenser of food aid, a demobilizer of soldiers, a negotiator of life-altering deals—and he is a writer. Disaster Gypsies is a highly readable tour of the sights, scares, and moral tradeoffs that Norris encountered in the earth's most troubled places. With a meticulous eye for detail, he offers a kind of 'biography of a humanitarian,' casting insight on democracy promotion and nation building at a time when we desperately need his hard-won wisdom."
