    (96)

    In 2000 Rye Barcott spent part of his summer living in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya. He was a college student heading into the Marines, and he sought to better understand ethnic violence - something he would likely face later in uniform. He learned Swahili, asked questions, and listened to young people talk about how they survived in poverty he had never imagined.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    If you want a light read about social change this is exactly what your looking for. Its interesting from a societal perspective. But it is riddled with contradictions and it is definitely not a marines path to peace. If you do want to bust your stereotypes about the marines however this is a good book for you.
