The Big Truck That Went By: how the world came to save Haiti and left a disaster behind

big_truck_that_went_by_imageVery good. I’ve been curious about what happened to Haiti after the earthquake. I knew basically nothing about Haiti’s history or context and author Jonathan Katz did an amazing job educating me. Quite the indictment of the international aid process and donor countries who pledge money and then never actually give it. A shocking and important book, I recommend it. (submitted by JF)
