A practical handbook for engineers and relief workers providing humanitarian assistance. Basic practical information is provided to implement an effective engineering response in the aftermath of an emergency. The focus of the book is the type of emergency typified by the Rwandan crisis and the ensuing refugee exodus to Tanzania and Zaire, but it is relevant to a broad range of emergencies and disasters. It has been prepared on behalf of Red R (Registered Engineers for Disaster Relief). Red R selects, prepares and supplies engineers and technicians to front-line relief agencies. The contents of the book reflect both the field experience of these relief workers and the experience that Red R has accumulated through training and debriefing. The book deals in depth with "hard" subjects (water, sanitation, roads and shelter). There is also an emphasis on the "soft" subjects needed for effective relief work (managerial skills, personal effectiveness, an appreciation of the needs of refugees and the international relief system). It is designed to be an accessible and practical guide for fieldworkers and a useful reference for all relief workers.

"As we trek into the next millennium, asserting, maintaining, and defending our humanity in the face of global capital, we very much need 'Other Kinds of Dreams'."
-Angela Y. Davis, UC-Santa Cruz, From the Foreword
Accounts of political activism in African-Caribbean and Asian communities often overlook the role of black women activists and therefore contribute towards an image of passivity, apathy and exclusion. Through an empirical study of black women's organisations, this book interrogates contemporary theories of racism and racialisation, political mobilisation and feminism relating to the experiences of black women to wider issues of politics and difference, class and coalitions. 'Other Kinds of Dreams' questions the homogeneity of the term 'black' and asks whether increasing social stratification within black communities undermines this unity. It also analyses the relationship between black women's organisations, black men and white feminists within the context of coalition building for social transformation. 'Other Kinds of Dreams' provides invaluable insights into the political activity of black women in spite of the immense barriers they face, both from within black communities and from society as a whole.This will prove essential reading to students of cultural studies, 'race' and ethnic studies, women's studies and all those with an interest in race relations and political activism.
