Children and Armed Conflict: Cross-Disciplinary Investigations (Studies in Childhood and Youth) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Exploring the experiences of children encountering war and armed conflict, this book draws upon history, ethnography, sociology, literature, media studies, psychology, public policy, and other disciplines to address children as soldiers, refugees, and peace-builders within their social, cultural, and political contexts.

Book News Annotation:

In order to truly understand how children experience armed conflict, it is necessary to go beyond the trope of "innocent victims" and look at the full complexities of how children act in, are acted upon, and experience war, according to Cook (childhood studies and sociology, Rutgers U.) and Wall (religion and childhood studies, Rutgers U.), who present 11 chapters exploring the issue from a variety of perspectives. Topics addressed include child memoirs and Holocaust fiction, girl soldiers in World War I, effects of war experiences among internally displaced children in Southern Darfur, young people and community politics in refugee contexts, protection of children in humanitarian crises, integrating children's knowledge into post-war peacebuilding, and a resilience approach to reintegrating girl fighters.
