Although published in 1998, this account of the origin and history of the International Committee of the Red Cross is well worth reading in the 2010s of ruthless wars, climate-related severe disasters, and super-disease outbreaks. The humanitarian work of the Red Cross has been facilitated by the Geneva Conventions which are often dismissed by contemporary warring parties. In the later 20th century non-governmental humanitarian organizations and agencies of the United Nations came on the world scene to challenge the traditional work of the Red Cross. This almost 800-page book might have benefited from serious editing; and the addition of some maps. This chronicle has photographs, end notes and an index. Scant bibliographies are provided as prefaces to the end notes for each chapter.
