9781850654858: Impact of War on Children

Graca Machel, UNICEF's special rapporteur, also scrutinises sexual crimes in time of war, the fate of orphans, the disproportionate suffering of children endure in civil wars, and their special vulnerability to such side-effects of conflict as famine, disease and social fragmentation. "The Impact of War on Children" is an urgent call to action-for the commitment and tenacity needed to protect children from the atrocities of war. Children present a uniquely compelling motivation for mobilisation, and an opportunity to confront the problems that cause their suffering. This book is complemented by 16 evocative photographs by Sebastiao Salgado, a documentary photographer of world renown, covering Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Rwanda and elsewhere.

About the Author:

In 1994 the UN Secretary-General appointed Graca Machel as an independent expert to assess the impact of armed conflict on children. Her groundbreaking report set out a comprehensive agenda for the protection of children. She is a member of the UN Foundation, the International Crisis Group and ACCORD, and is currently Chancellor of both the University of Cape Town and the UN University for Peace. She is married to Nelson Mandela.The Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado had dedicated many years to chronicling the lives of the world's dispossessed, and has won numerous awards. A UNICEF Special Representative, he has collaborated with humanitarian organisations throughout his career.

From Library Journal:

In this authoritative and moving work, Machel (Univ. of Cape Town; United Nations Univ. for Peace), an international advocate for children, reviews and evaluates individual and group efforts to codify and enforce human rights standards for the treatment of the world's children, many of whom are still forced into combat at a tender age or denied education, physical and social nourishment, and shelter. She cites the exploitation of children as an international shame comparable to the denial of equal rights to women, who, along with the young, are victims of violent approaches to conflict resolution. Machel also discusses the growing HIV/AIDS crisis, ramifications of the influential powers of global communications media, land mine and cluster bomb dangers, worldwide availability of light weapons, negative effects of economic sanctions, and the importance of women's present and potential contributions to decisions involving their own and the world's children. Included is a 16-page section of poignant photographs, "a testimony" to children's suffering and resiliency, by the author's brother, a UNICEF special representative and, more famously, a longtime visual documenter of the world's downtrodden. Highly recommended for a concerned readership, as well as public, academic, and professional libraries. Suzanne W. Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology at Alfred
