Beyond Shock offers a deep and holistic analysis of the significance of gender-based violence and rape following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The book connects these forms of violence, which victimized women, girls and at times boys, to the inhumane social, political and economic living conditions of the victims and survivors. Beyond Shock is also a critique of international reconstruction politics and policies that assign meager resources in the fight to eliminate these human rights violations. A must read.
