From the Publisher"Little is left out of this volume, which encompasses culture and gender economics. It even takes in a longitudinal study by Boothby, who reports on research that has followed children over 16 years in search of what may have facilitated their reintegration and reconciliation after war.... comprehensive and informative, making it a ‘must read’ for practitioners."
"This collection addresses a pressing issue that figures in dozens of conflicts around the world - especially in Africa but also in Asia, South America, and Eastern Europe. The authors gather significant data and provide arresting analysis and insight. The book should be of interest to everyone who seeks to understand and reverse the terrible abuse of children in war zones."
"The vast experience and tested approaches of the authors provide excellent and authoritative guidance for those intending to respond to the urgent psychosocial needs of affected populations."
"An excellent reader for graduate students in several disciplinary fields, including international child welfare, development studies, conflict studies, psychology, and related social sciences, providing valuable overviews with useful references. The issues and frameworks discussed have extensive relevance. This is a valuable resource for development and humanitarian practitioners, policy makers, and organizations working in conflict, post-conflict and refugee settings, within the psychosocial sector and beyond"
"An important addition to the study of war affected children that can be a valuable resource for students, academics, policy makers and practitioners who are interested in child and adolescent development and the need for an effective response to children traumatized by conflict."
