Today We Drop Bombs, Tomorrow We Build Bridges: How Foreign Aid Became a Casualty of War

by Peter Gill
£12.99   paperback  Zed Books Ltd (2016)

Today We Drop Bombs, Tomorrow We Build Bridges: How Foreign Aid Became a Casualty of War by Peter Gill The war on terror has politicised foreign aid as never before. Aid workers are being killed at an alarming rate and civilians in war-torn countries abandoned to their fate.
 
From the ravaged streets of Mogadishu to the unending struggle in Helmand, Peter Gill travels to some of the most conflict-stricken places on earth to reveal the true relationship between the aid business and Western security. While some agencies have clung to their neutrality against ever stiffer odds, others have compromised their impartiality to secure the flow of official funds.
 
In a world where the advance of Islamic State constitutes the gravest affront to humanitarian practice and principle the aid community has faced in decades, Gill poses the crucial question - can Western nations fight in a country and aid it at the same time?
