The Big Truck That Went By

How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster

Jonathan M. Katz

This gripping first-hand account takes readers inside the devastation of Haiti's deadliest earthquake in 2010. Investigating the aftermath of the $16.3 billion in global pledges to aid the country, the author uncovers startling truths about international aid and its impact on poor countries. With a darkly humorous and unexpected portrayal of Haiti's leaders and people, this book is a definitive account of not only the earthquake but the world we live in today.
