1 Review
The unusual and innovative data collected in this book comes from material written by children 13-15 years old directly after the coup of July 27th, 1985, in Kampala. Four hundred children wrote essays on "The Events of War and Violence in My Life" and/or "Events that Made Me Happy or Sad," and a corresponding number of checklist questionnaires and interviews were collected. Twenty-four of the essays are presented here, along with articles concerning the effects of war on Ugandan children, and the dilemma of parents during wartime. The Foreword is written by James P. Grant, Executive Director of Unicef. The work will make an impact on child psychologists and all lay readers concerned with Uganda and the effects of war and violence on children.
