Karl, is Maren's book a scathing critique of international aid? Theroux references this book several times and, on the surface, the title is decisive. I understand he's worked in Africa for quite some time. We would want to get at the values behind these decisions and the moral imperatives that accompany them, but the first-person reflection would be vital in this case.

I'm intrigued by the two titles at the end, are they academic. Who is the intended audience?
