Ishmael Beah, the author of A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier movingly introduces the misuse and rehabilitation of young combatants in wars. Dupuy (International Peace Research Institute, Oslo, Norway) and Peters (development studies, Swansea U., UK) examine the impact of war on children, their responses and those of the world. The book includes a chronology of wars throughout history in which children have been conscripted; maps; case studies; UN resolutions and other initiatives regarding children and armed conflict; a glossary; and categorized bibliography of print and film sources." - Reference & Research Book News "Both this overall resource and its bibliography provide an excellent starting point for further research. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and higher." - Choiceshow more
