New in Paperback: Dr. Samantha Nutt’s #1 Bestseller, Damned Nations

Lavin speaker Dr. Samantha Nutt—Founder and Executive Director of the internationally recognized War Child Canada organization—is releasing her #1 national bestselling book, Damned Nations: Greed, Guns, Armies and Aid, in paperback this month.

An award-winning humanitarian, Dr. Samantha Nutt has worked with children and families at the frontlines of some of the world's most dangerous war zones. In Damned Nations, Nutt intertwines personal experience with impassioned argument on the issues and assumptions surrounding the aid industry. Fellow Lavin speaker Lewis Lapham praised the book as “a brave, eloquent, and necessary book.”   

Damned Nations is a gripping account of war and aid, of how humanitarian can go wrong, and what can—and must —be done to make our world more peaceful and fair. In customized talks, Dr. Nutt provides essential insights into what it means to be an active global citizen in today's interconnected world: how we can better promote equity and form effective movements, and achieve social change.
