Readings in relief and development for the college freshman
October 24, 2013 5:44 AM Subscribe
When I was sixteen, I said I wanted to be a doctor and work in humanitarian relief. A few years on I'm not so sure - but I want to read all about relief and development! Specifically, the economics and politics of international development, as well as aid workers' experiences. Memoirs, essay collections, academic treatises, etc are welcome.

Assume that I'm familiar with the fundamentals of economics, the rough outlines of world history, a smattering of postcolonial theory and the other basic stuff one picks up having graduated high school and moved on to a small, selective liberal arts college. Thanks!
