"Angry, impassioned essays are not the general currency of Canadian non-fiction, so it's refreshing that physician Samantha Nutt breaks the mould with her forthright attack on militarism and misguided aid efforts that exacerbate the poverty and conflict they are meant to solve. . . . Damned Nations
is an important read." -- Quill and Quire
