Third New October Release Update

Hello, KP Bookreaders:

In addition to Context-Sensitive Development and Foreign Aid Competition in Northeast Asia, The Golden Fleece is out.

Edited by Antonio Donini, The Golden Fleece delves into questions that are rarely asked and seldom answered. It examines the impact of manipulation on the effectiveness of humanitarian action. This book takes a long view, starting with the origins of organized humanitarianism in the mid-19th century and zeroes in on the twenty-plus years since the end of the Cold War. It examines whether instrumentalization has achieved its desired objectives, whether political manipulation is greater today than before, and whether the recent dramatic growth of relief work has opened up humanitarian action to greater manipulation.

The book has already received national and international attention by organizations such as: The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and the Global Insecurities Centre, University of Bristol.

The book is available to purchase through Kumarian Press and retails for $29.95.
