Thomas Dooley's humanitarian work was cited by JFK when he was launching the Peace Corps. Dooley wrote many books about his experience doing humanitarian work in South East Asia. The Edge of Tomorrow covers a year he spent establishing two hospitals in remote Laos, near the Chinese border. In some ways the work is a product of a time past, with much anti-communism sentiment. However, at it's heart this is a story of a group of people wanting to help fellow human beings. This title may a good primary source to those interested in the history of humanitarian work or South East Asia. ( )
