Recent Items For Scholars

Women, Children and War

Most discussions on H-War are interested in adult male behavior, but of course war impacts women and children, too. I discovered some recent research on these topics.

This special issue of Critical Studies on Security has several articles on children and conflict.  The abstract is available for each, but only people with subscriptions or institutional access will be able to see the fulltexts.
