About the Author:

Graša Machel is internationally recognized for her leadership in bringing international attention to the affects of children in war-torn countries as well as founding the Foundation for Community Development. She married Nelson Mandela in 1998.

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
