Married women in the labor market are victimized all over the world, mainly because women's work-life cycle differs radically from that of men. During a review of recent research data and a fifteen-month study tour in nine communist and non-communist countries, it was found that working mothers continue to carry a double burden of home and child care duties, on the one hand, and employment, on the other. Lack of coordination among labor market, social welfare, and educational policy makers has resulted in (with the possible exception of Sweden) ineffectual social policies that don't adequately accomodate or support womens' special needs and circumstances. Immediate provision of child care facilities for part-time work could serve as intermediate solutions until society adapts over the long run to new definitions of sex roles and equalization of parental responsibilities. In the United States, a maternal bill of rights could be instituted to maximize women's productivity and earnings and to alleviate some of the burden now borne by working mothers. (Author/KR)

This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped-up on drugs and wielding AK-47s. Children have become soldiers of choice. In the more than fifty conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have struggled to imagine their lives. But until now, there has not been a first-person account from someone who came through this hell and survived. Ishmael Beah, now 25 years old, tells how at the age of twelve, he fled attacking rebels and wandered a land rendered unrecognizable by violence. By thirteen, he'd been picked up by the government army, and Beah, at heart a gentle boy, found that he was capable of truly terrible acts.--From publisher description
