Review: The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good

User Review  - Katrina Becker - Goodreads

Gosh I wanted to hate this book... From the title to the depressing premise. While I still disagree with several things, the first chapter being chock-full of Harry Potter references helped soften my heart to keep reading. Read full review
