5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introductory textbook for anyone entering the field, 18 Dec 2009
This review is from: Complex Emergencies (Paperback)
Complex Emergencies provides an excellent overview for anyone who is seeking to enter the fields of international development and conflict resolution. Keen, a professor at the London School of Economics, observes a wide variety of issues, explaining them in clear detail and viewing them from an entirely different angle from many other academics. Topics include the effects and functions of famines, the greed vs. grievance debate, the debate over peace, and whether or not ethnic conflicts are actually ethnic.

This book is highly recommended -- a must read for all aspiring development workers and academics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book and an excellent professor!, 29 Nov 2012
This review is from: Complex Emergencies (Paperback)
The book helps clarify the complex nature of many emergencies in the developing world. Professor Keen, teaches a course with the same name at the London School of Economics. The book and the course are amazing. I would defiantly recommend it for anyone interested in the developing world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read!, 20 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complex Emergencies (Paperback)
first off this book is well done and thats why i have it 4 stars, however i got this book as from what i could see it was a very one sided view on 'complex emergencies' I would have to say as a manager in humanitarian disasters its important to be aware of all sides to one topic and this book is a intersting read however some of its ideas are not main stream and should be read with a pintch of salt for lack of a better word! What i like about this book is that over all it highlights the bad sides as well as the good! overall its fine read well worth getting. just keep an open mind!
