Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Contents "Damned Nations chronicles the many threads that bind Western nations to the ubiquitous violence plaguing war-torn countries around the world -- from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, to the hostile urban streets of Somalia, to the charred villages of Sudan and to the rape pandemic of eastern Congo. Samantha Nutt shows how, in an era of globalization and accelerated military spending, rich countries continue to reap the profits of this social malaise while also trading in missed opportunities through misguided aid programs." -- P. [2] of jacket.
