5.0 out of 5 stars Somebody ordered it, somebody did it, and somebody tolerated it. And all are guilty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the piece about the India India does not want you to know about
If you are new to sacco then the excellent Palestine and Safe Area... are where you should be rather than here. This compilation is okay and better then Notes from.... The best piece is about the India India does not want you to know about: the abomination that is the caste system. Sacco presents a ghastly picture of life at the wrong end.

"Somebody ordered it, somebody did it, and somebody tolerated it. And all are guilty."

"Someone leans over and says, In America when someone dies, you cry. Here we have a party."

"If you work for the Americans, the Mujahadeen will kill you; If you work for the Mujahadeen, the Americans will kill you; And if you stay home, you won't earn any money."

"When African immigrants arrive here, they are welcomed by detention for up to a year and a half before being released to open centers, where they can come and go as they please."

"When the day of reckoning comes, there will not be enough lampposts for the traitorous bastards."

"Arsonists have targeted the homes or property of those considered sympathetic to the immigrants, including journalists, Jesuits, and a lawyer."

"In 2002 Malta forcibly returned more than 220 Eritreans; they were immediately imprisoned on arrival. Many were tortured, and some died from their mistreatment."

"When residents saw he way paying some of them to clean the facility, they intentionally threw garbage on the ground. The more cleaners were employed, the more it became dirty..."

"Big people. That's a euphemism for those who call the shots in the village, those who perhaps aren't so much worried that we'll glimpse the shameful poverty here as get an inkling into what a wonderful business it can be."

"Suvanti says she works for 20. Does she know that the minimum wage is 100 rupees? What is the point knowing it? Men make 100 rupees, women make 20 rupees. How does it make a difference if I know?"

"The women (and children and even men) go to the fields where the rats are, and we collect the grains that they store in their holes, and we bring them here. We go there every day."

There is a good mix of stories. I would say fairly balanced for those who would accuse him of bias.

If you like Sacco's book this is a must. Good to understand who he works. After reading, 'Save area Gorazde' and Palestina this book clarify a lot of things to me.
