Ginzburg, Oren. THE HUNGRY MAN. 2005. Geneva Switzerland.

Hungry Man Book Review

The first of Ginzburg´s satires is wrapped in whimsical drawings and brief statements. In this book he mocks the foreign development ´business´ where white experts travel abroad to help the poor and starving. After the assessment reports, the charts, the meetings, the social exchange and patronization the hungry man is still hungry. A good guide for sensitive aid workers to help them avoid the pitfalls of our culture´s assumed superiority and to really think about our attitudes and strategies for change.
