Human Rights and Children

Kudos to Human Rights at Home blog contributor Barbara Stark, Professor of Law at Hofstra University, for her new anthology:  Human Rights and Children.  According to the publisher :

"This volume provides a comprehensive overview of children’s human rights, collecting the works of leading authorities as well as new scholars grappling with emerging ideas of ‘children’ and ‘rights.’ Beginning with the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most widely ratified human rights treaty in the world, this book explores the theory, doctrine, and implementation of the legal frameworks addressing child labor, child soldiers, and child trafficking, as well as children’s socio-economic rights, including their rights to education. 

With an original introduction by the Professor Stark, this topical volume is an invaluable resource for scholars, students, and activists."
In addition to Professor Stark, the volume includes writings by HRAH blog contributors Jonathan Todres and Martha Davis, as well as many others.  In short, every law library should have it.  You can check out the table of contents here.
