Reviews

'This is an important piece of work and fills what, for a long time, has been a significant gap in the literature - the relationship between children and conflict and the international responses to it. Huynh, D'Costa and Lee-Koo have written a book that students, academics and policymakers should read - and with some urgency.' Ali Watson, University of St Andrews, Scotland
