This is an acclaimed exploration of humanitarianism's emergence as a multibillion-dollar industry that has played a leading role in defining international crises, and shaping the foreign policy of Western governments and the United Nations. Drawing on his own experience as an aid worker in over a dozen conflict and post-conflict zones, Conor Foley shows how the growing influence of international law has been used to override the sovereignty of the poorest countries in the world.
