Children in Crisis offers authoritative portraits of young people living, coping, and surviving under some of the most difficult circumstances on the planet today. From AIDS in South Africa to post-Chernobyl illnesses to life on the streets in Rio and in Sudanese refugee camps to child labor in India and life as an Afghan refugee in the United States, each title provides a moving picture of worldwide crises and the people who weather them. The words come from firsthand interviews and other primary sources, and the pictures are actual photographs of the featured subjects. Through these primary source words and photos, readers will become personally acquainted with--and caught up in the life of--a young person and his or her family as they live through contemporary crises that most of us would otherwise experience secondhand through news accounts.
