A comparative history of humanitarianism, especially among groups operating within the United States, Great Britain, and Switzerland, reveals existing forms of action that M?decins Sans Fronti?res, M?decins du Monde, and others have perfected over time and through rigorous trials. The contributors to this volume develop just such a history, focusing on the Red Crosss relief practices and their integration with Amnesty Internationals public opinion mobilization efforts, which today form the basis of the worlds leading humanitarian programs.

Contributors also compare competing French and Anglo-Saxon models of intervention and assess the future of humanitarianism in the twenty-first century.
