Overview

Explore the Lifelong Psychological Impact of War and Violence on ChildrenWhether they live under the pall of hostilities in Somalia or in a crime-infested American neighborhood, many children are on the front lines, victims of conflict in which the traditional distinctions between combatants and civilians often become blurred. War and violence are part of day-to-day life for a tragic number of the world's children."This book should stab the conscience of the world. No one can read its gripping account of the terrifying impact on children of modern war and remain unchanged."—George McGovern, former U.S. Senator, South Dakota and 1972 Democratic presidential nominee"This is a remarkable volume. It outlines significantly the cost that children pay for adult warfare. From Cambodia, Mozambique, Nicaragua, and Palestine we are led to the terrible parallels of gang warfare in Chicago. . . . We are creating a legacy of terrorism and brutality in these inner-city children for the next generation, and the next. . . . This wonderful book dramatizes this and gives us the challenge of what we can do about it. And we'd better."—T. Berry Brazelton, professor emeritus in pediatrics at Children's Hospital, Boston; author of Infants and Mothers and The Earliest Relationship"The value of the book lies in its advocacy for children. . . . The rights of children throughout the world are not only being compromised by the adult population, but more ominously, are being abrogated by individuals, organized groups, and states. [The authors] show convincingly that such violations of children's rights are not limited to undeveloped or conflict-ridden regions of the world."—The International Journal of Children's Rights
