"Humanitarianism Under Fire" is a valuable addition to the heated debate over the motivations behind, and the legacy of, the US response to the crisis threatening tens of millions of lives in Somalia in 1992. Combining the methods of a scholar with the insights of a field-based humanitarian worker, Ken Rutherford s contribution is at once highly readable and deeply compelling.
About the Author
Kenneth R. Rutherford is Associate Professor of Political Science at Missouri State University. After losing both his legs to a landmine in Somalia in 1993, Dr. Rutherford has traveled worldwide to promote awareness of the mass suffering caused by these weapons and for the economic and social rights for the landmine disabled. He has worked for the Peace Corps (Mauritania), UN High Commissioner for Refugees (Senegal), and International Rescue Committee (Kenya and Somalia) and is co-founder of the Landmine Survivors Network. He has testified before Congress and published articles in numerous academic and policy journals, including World Politics and the Journal of International Politics, and co-edited two books: Reframing the Agenda: The Impact of NGO and Middle Power Cooperation in International Security Policy and Landmines and Human Security: The International Movement to Ban Landmines.
