About this Item

The collapse of entire countries and societies around the world, especially since the Vietnam war, has left many millions of people homeless, starving, rootless, and in dire need, yet despite a large and well-organized refugee assistance effort, the response is nowhere near adequate to the need. When societies collapse through war, misgovernment, corruption, and other causes, the effects on populations are always catastrophic. Mark Fritz's hard to find book sheds a lot of valuable insight on the problem and what can be done about it. This is a lovely unmarked collectable copy of this book, the story of the millions of innocent civilians who have been uprooted all over the world by wars and ethnic hatreds after the end of the Cold War. The author won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from Rwanda, and the inscription reads, " -- , Thanks so much for inviting me to speak to the Council. It was a terrific time. All the best, Mark.".
