9780520279322: Bread from Stones: The Middle East and the Making of Modern Humanitarianism

Bread from Stones, a highly anticipated book from historian Keith David Watenpaugh, breaks new ground in analyzing the theory and practice of modern humanitarianism. Genocide and mass violence, human trafficking, and the forced displacement of millions in the early twentieth century Eastern Mediterranean form the background for this exploration of humanitarianism’s role in the history of human rights.

Watenpaugh’s unique and provocative examination of humanitarian thought and action from a non-Western perspective goes beyond canonical descriptions of relief work and development projects. Employing a wide range of source materials literary and artistic responses to violence, memoirs, and first-person accounts from victims, perpetrators, relief workers, and diplomats Watenpaugh argues that the international answer to the inhumanity of World War I in the Middle East laid the foundation for modern humanitarianism and the specific ways humanitarian groups and international organizations help victims of war, care for trafficked children, and aid refugees. 

Bread from Stones is required reading for those interested in humanitarianism and its ideological, institutional, and legal origins, as well as the evolution of the movement following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the advent of late colonialism in the Middle East.

From the Inside Flap:

"From the vantage point of the Eastern Mediterranean and the aftermath of the Armenian genocide, Keith Watenpaugh has rethought the history of humanitarianism and produced the most moving and textured account of it to date. With its penetrating contributions to a series of burning discussions—from America's role in the world to the origins of human rights to the fight against trafficking in women and children—Bread from Stones is a brilliant demonstration of the suppressed politics of humanitarianism and its failure to bring empowered citizenship, and not merely intermittent caring, to those who need it."—Samuel Moyn, Professor of Law and History at Harvard University and author of The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History

"Striking a fine balance between deep analysis, empirical evidence, and real life stories, this fascinating book brings the Levant from the periphery to the center of the humanitarian experience in the twentieth century. Bread from Stones is an outstanding piece of scholarship and will likely become one of the standard accounts in the field."—G. Daniel Cohen, Associate Professor of History at Rice University and author of In War’s Wake: Europe's Displaced Persons in the Postwar Order

"
The richness of documentation offered by Watenpaugh pulls the reader into how international bodies tried to make sense of the senseless act that was the Armenian Genocide."—The Armenian Weekly
