Editorial Reviews

Review

That the World May Know explores the double binds that attract, reward and torment those engaged in human rights and humanitarian work on the front lines of intervention. Because of its combination of interview and literary material, it presents a rich and diverse set of data to the reader. No one has so far written a book quite like this. (Jacqueline Bhabha, Executive Director, Harvard University Committee on Human Rights Studies)

Dawes maintains a remarkable balance of tone, searchingly sympathetic yet calmly analytical. (Steven Poole The Guardian 2008-01-12)

Anyone concerned with human rights--with humanity in general--will come away from James Dawes' That The World May Know troubled and well informed...During the last 30 years, Americans have seen images of or read about genocide, torture, and violent political repression in Bosnia, Rwanda, Somalia, Darfur, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Haiti, Nigeria, and Argentina. Dawes' book asks us to think about how stories of atrocity are told, who gets to tell them, how those stories affect us, and ultimately what good they may or may not do. (Tom Palaima Texas Observer 2008-02-08)

I strongly recommend this book. Easy to read, it shows the basic aspects of aid working, storytelling and photojournalism, quoting many experts. In general, the book gives some criticism that inspires a lot!
