Product Details


“It is hard to imagine anything worse than turning innocent children into ‘callous killers capable of the most terrible acts of cruelty.’ In this vital and compelling book, Peter W. Singer forces us to confront this awful problem head on, shows how children are dehumanized and turned into killers, and how to deal with the problem. We continue to ignore this crisis only at our peril. Attention must be paid to this book, and to its cogent recommendations.”
–Kati Marton, Author of Hidden Power and Former Chief Advocate, United Nations Office of Children and Armed Conflict

“Fascinating…[A] heartfelt, valuable book …Singer has gathered his evidence masterfully.”
–Ralph Peters, New York Post

“An important book… Singer could not have chosen a more heart-wrenching subject, and he leads us carefully through this tender and brutal landscape…[He] is to be commended for drawing attention to the plight of child soldiers…”
–Austin Merrill, San Francisco Chronicle

“Groundbreaking and comprehensive…Activists will be aided by the diligent research and reasoned analysis.”
Publishers Weekly

“Nowhere else is there a more compact, compelling portrait of this devastating problem that the world must not ignore.”
–Michael B. Farrell, Christian Science Monitor
