Overview

Stolen Childhood: In Search of the Rights of the Child by Anuradha Vittachi

A CHANNEL FOUR BOOK.

•Stolen Childhood' is the story of what is being done to achieve justice for the Earth's most vulnerable majority - children.

• At risk worldwide from abuse, exploitation and poverty, the obligation to protect children and recognize their needs has never been more urgent.

• International pressure has prompted the nations of the world to agree an enforceable set of standards on children's rights. This 'Convention on the Rights of the Child' will be ratified by the UN this November to mark the 30th anniversary of the Declaration on the Rights of the Child.

• Compelling and authoritative, 'Stolen Childhood' summarizes the key issues on children's rights, and describes the reality of children's lives around the world: a crack addict in New York; a polio victim in India; a Down's Syndrome child in Sweden; child workers in Italy; and the children of prostitutes in the Phillipines.

•Stolen Childhood' is highly illustrated and written for a general audience. It is an indispensable contribution to one of the most pressing social issues in the world today.
