Pressestimmen"Hundreds of international scholars from diverse disciplines and six volume editors contribute to the signed entries of this original and up-to-date encyclopedia that explores the issues that children face worldwide. This set advances the multidisciplinary field of children's studies, bringing together a wide range of research with special focus on the ideas of children's rights codified by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. . . . An extraordinary consistent writing style is maintained across all volumes as each entry places the issues not only within a larger social and cultural context, but also within a historical context. Extensive resource lists including citations for books, videos, Web sites, and organizations conclude each entry. In addition, maps, a variety of tables, and a comprehensive index are included. Although this set offers a broad range of information in concentrated form, its heavy focus on statistical information provide by the United Nations and other international bodies makes it a great resource both for ready reference and for those seeking broad research overviews. It will interest those involved in any discipline that focuses on children's lives. Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers." - Choice
