Review quote

An excellent study on a woefully understudied topic. Loretta Bass takes us to the front lines of a problem that we know exists, but that attracts little attention beyond occasional newspaper stories.... a real strength of the book is its use of a wide variety of evidence to support its arguments. York Bradshaw, University of Memphis; This wide-ranging study interrogates the pervasive and staggering phenomenon of child labor in its most diverse ramifications. Bass includes a wealth of interesting data that concretizes the issues discussed.... She has written a very valuable book. Tabitha Kanogo, University of California, Berkeleyshow more
