Sobre o livro
A Memoir of War, Disaster and Humanitarian Psychiatry. Over almost twenty-five years Lynne Jones has been working as a humanitarian psychiatrist, treating those whose mental health has been affected by war or genocide or unimaginable natural disaster. But this book is not only about the patients she has treated, it also shines a light on humanitarian aid and all its glories and problems. This is an astonishing insight into the life of a humanitarian psychiatrist working in war and disaster zones around the world - from Bosnia and 'mission-accomplished' Iraq, to tsunami-affected Aceh, post-earthquake Haiti and 'the Jungle' in Calais.
