A fantastic and troubling book. I consider myself socially conscious but the author presented insight that I had not considered previously. Justice is the most important task facing the world today. I immediately bought four copies of this book in order to share it with others.

My concept of reality has been forever changed by Haugen's book. I doubt I will ever be able to forget the faces and stories of the victims of violence presented here, and I think this is the success of the book.

I was deeply moved by this book. Prior to reading it, I was ignorant of the enormity of the issue of everyday violence in the lives of poeple who struggle with poverty. Gary Haugen clearly shows how violence undermines the effect of our efforts to alleviate poverty. He explains why they cannot be fully effective without addressing the issue of violence. Gary and the organization he leads, International Justice Mission (IJM), are making a difference on a global scale. Reading this book opened my eyes and I highly recommend it.
