Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Of course we think about starving children, but to what extent? UNICEF has prepared a well-documented work focusing on the children of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. This is not a book about starving children but about the social, political, and economic upheaval that has drastically affected the lives of 150 million young people. For instance, in six years the male teen suicide rate in Russia increased more than 18 percent, while in Belarus adolescent crimes rose 100 percent between 1989 and 1994. Why? During that time 12,000 children were orphaned or abandoned in that country alone. Chapter after chapter deals with statistics and analysis prepared by experts in their fields. It is often difficult to absorb the eye-opening material and the implication that these children may well be beyond jeopardy--they may already be lost. Essential reading for those interested in history, children, social programs, politics, and the future.--Sandra Isaacson, U.S. EPA Region VII Lib., Kansas City
