From the Publisher"Carpenter's excellent collected volume... establishes children born of war as the rightful subjects of human rights law and practice...[she] has given us a powerful framework for thinking about and acting in the name of [these] children - one that may well inspire an entirely new field, and do a great deal of good in the process."
"This book sheds light on a serious human security concern that persists despite the abundance of international legal instruments designed to protect children who by accident of birth happen to be in conflict zones. This excellently edited volume, with its rich case studies and thoughtful recommendations, is a cutting edge work that will attract the interest of academics and policymakers working in the humanitarian field."
"Born of War is an important and unique book which anyone interested in children's rights should put on their required reading list. This multidisciplinary volume is an invaluable resource for students as well as scholars interested in learning more about the role of gender, ethnicity and gross violations of children's human rights."
"This edited volume by Charli Carpenter brings outstanding scholarship to a theme and a group of people which have not received sufficient attention in the past - the children born of war. This group of war-victims has not only been kept hidden from their respective communities. They have also been largely invisible to international scholars because they are such a vulnerable group to study. The authors have not only done an outstanding job in bringing an understanding of how urgent the need for more knowledge is; they have also managed to give voice to a group that is seldom heard and deserves our undivided attention."
