(about the first edition) Emphasizes that much of the organization's work takes place not in war zones but in remote, impoverished locales.--Caroline Preston"Chronicle of Philanthropy" (12/09/2004)
(about the first edition) All in all, I found Hope in Hell to be a nicely balanced book about this type of work/volunteerism that I've been curious about for years.--Norm Rooker"Emergency Medical Services Magazine" (08/01/2005)
Allows the reader a very honest look at MSF.--Alison Delory"Medical Post" (11/16/2004)
(about the first edition) Comprehensive picture of the essence of volunteerism.--Amanda Walters"The Lancet" (09/04/2004)
Bortolotti, a journalist and author, visited doctors, nurses, and nonmedical staff in Doctors Without Borders programs in Angola, the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, Haiti, and other countries, and reveals their experiences in the program. He provides historical information on the organization and its origins in France and describes stories of its volunteers, what they do, and the patients they treat, within the context of the political and cultural climate of specific countries. This edition adds a postscript to the chapter on Haiti.-- (06/01/2011)
(about the first edition) Looks at the history, politics and motivations of MSF and its volunteers... analyzes the difficulties that MSF faces.-- (10/01/2004)
(about the first edition) Inspired... Much of what Bortolotti reports is noticeably absent from the daily headlines, so this eye opening account is all the more chilling, and MSF's efforts achingly more compelling.-- (09/15/2004)
(about the first edition) Describes but never romanticizes... Direct and evocative, this well-written book pushers readers to the edge of a world of grueling realities not know by most Americans. Recommended.-- (07/01/2005)
(about the first edition) Some physicians still do manifest the noblest virtues of medicine... a worthwhile read for prospective international aid volunteers.-- (10/30/2004)
It is in the considerable space that Bortolotti gives to the emotions of the group's staff members that the book really shines... authentic and inclusive... informative and touching.-- (12/30/2004)
(about the first edition) Traces the history of the world's largest independent medical humanitarian organization... grimly poignant.-- (08/09/2004)
