A problem from hell : America and the age of genocide by Samantha Power ( Book )
48 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 3,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Problem from Hell" is a path-breaking interrogation of the last century of American history. Samantha Power poses a question that haunts our nation's past: Why do American leaders who vow "never again" repeatedly fail to marshal the will and the might to stop genocide? She provides the answer in the form of the suspenseful story of courageous individuals who risked their careers and lives in an effort to get the United States to act. Drawing upon exclusive interviews with Washington's top policymakers, access to thousands of pages of newly declassified documents, and her own reporting from the modern killing fields, Power shows how those who urged U.S. action were thwarted again and again by ignorance, indifference, and, above all, a failure of imagination."--BOOK JACKET

Reporter ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Follows New York Times op-ed columnist Nicholas Kristof as he seeks to bring the plight of the Congo to a seemingly deaf western world. Using the findings of psychological studies as his guide, Kristof seeks to find that single person, that single heart-wrenching story he can use as a focus for his columns, and thus touch well-off and uninvolved western readers. Along with highlighting the suffering and death among Congolese refugees fleeing the ongoing ruthless conflict between several factions and warlords, the film questions humanitarian activism itself--how can those who care about humanitarian needs convince others to care about them as well, and how can they themselves keep from becoming jaded and unflappable?
