5.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing read. 25 Mar. 2014
By Martin J Dunlop - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The sub-title of Australian humanitarian aid worker Tom Bamforth’s book neatly defines its contents: “dispatches from the front line of aid relief from Pakistan to Kazan, the Punjab to the Pacific”.
The dispassionate way he writes of tragedy, both natural and man-made, makes the telling all the more graphic.
The author devoted his life to aid-working more or less by chance. He was holidaying in north-west Pakistan on an archaeological tour when an earthquake in Kashmir killed more than 80,000 and left three million homeless. The holiday ended abruptly when he joined the Norwegian Refugee Council’s rescue and reconstruction team.
Thence it was to Africa and the horrors of civil war and close encounters with terrorists in Darfur.
The Pacific provided a different set of crises, every bit as pressing.
Deep Field reveals some of the harsh realities of some of the less privileged parts of the world. It’s informative without being depressing. An absorbing read.
5.0 out of 5 stars thoughtful, absorbing 15 April 2014

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a perfect length book. Tom manages to give you just enough insight into the complexity of the the humanitarian, it's challenges, the conundrums, the juxtapositions. There is just enough there to make you shift uneasily in your chair, stop and reflect without it being rammed down your throat. It is also grounded with a very wry sense of humour. You also never lose sense of his humanity, and why he is there. A perfect read.
