Overview

"Courageous, remarkably erudite, and deeply moving, this important book is the work of a thinker and activist at the height of her powers. Read it for rich historical perspective, wise legal analysis, and practical policy recommendations that address the vulnerabilities of children in the international landscape today."—Linda K. Kerber, author of No Constitutional Right to Be Ladies: Women and the Obligations of Citizenship

Bissell, chief of child protection, UNICEF
