Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Non-Fiction.
In her award-winning modern classic, Samantha Power presents a deeply researched and powerfully argued answer to this haunting question. Disproving claims that successive American leaders were unaware of genocidal horrors occurring around the world, Power tells the stories of courageous individuals who risked their careers and lives in an effort to save others, revealing how policy makers and outsiders alike ignored chilling warnings and rationalised inaction.
A riveting account, A Problem From Hell has forever reshaped debates about foreign policy, while inspiring a new generation to raise their voices in the face of contemporary injustice.
"Fascinating. An important book, a superb piece of reporting which cumulatively grows into a major political work, part polemic, part moral philosophy." (Observer)
"Deeply researched and trenchantly argued. A devastating indictment not just of the American foreign policy establishment but of the country’s entire political class, the media and even the wider public." (Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times)
"Power is part of an inspiring generation of political thinkers who are academically brilliant but who also know how to write." (David Hare, Books of the Year, Observer)

Excellent book, with the best ever narration
The book is a masterpiece of original research, which gives information about one of the most important facet of the evolution of human civilisation of today— civil wars, and Genocide.
It is, however, the utmost perfection of the narration that has enabled this work of non-fiction to be considered one of the best ever, to have been made available to the book listening community.
Keep up the good work!
