Children and Youth on the Front Line

In The Front Line [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Children and Youth on the Front Line by Jo Boyden,Joanna de Berry Book Summary:

War leads not just to widespread death but also to extensive displacement, overwhelming fear, and economic devastation. It weakens social ties, threatens household survival and undermines the family's capacity to care for its most vulnerable members. Every year it kills and maims countless numbers of young people, undermines thousands of others psychologically and deprives many of the economic, educational, health and social opportunities which most of us consider essential for children's effective growth and well being. Based on detailed ethnographic description and on young people's own accounts, this volume provides insights into children's experiences as both survivors and perpetrators of violence. It focuses on girls who have been exposed to sexual exploitation and abuse, children who head households or are separated from their families, displaced children and young former combatants who are attempting to adjust to their changed circumstances following the cessation of conflict. In this sense, the volume bears witness to the grim effects of warfare and displacement on the young. Nevertheless, despite the abundant evidence of suffering, it maintains that children are not the passive victims of conflict but engage actively with the conditions of war, an outlook that challenges orthodox research perspectives that rely heavily on medicalized notions of 'victim' and 'trauma.'

In The Front Line [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Frontline by Che Walker Book Summary:

Saturday night outside the tube: God, strip bars, weed, crack, lost old men, unemployed actors and vegans all collide in a riptide of chaos on the streets of London. There's Beth the reformed Christian and Erkenwald the hot-dog seller, old Ragdale on a quest to find his daughter, actor-playwright and egomaniac Mordechai Thurrock, and Cockburn, Elliot and Clayton the dealers and junkies whose trade both sustains and destroys the lives of those around them. In this vibrant and darkly comic new play, a dozen private stories emerge and their voices give utterance to a storm of subjects and feelings: pop culture and sexual fantasy, the ruins of empire and the delusions of religion, foreign oil and prehistoric London. A panorama of contemporary London encompassing the cruel and the tender, the gutter and the stars. Che Walker's The Frontline premiered at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, London, in July 2008. 'The brusque, bathetic poetry of back-street Camden is Walker's lingua franca. Flesh and blood and honour are his themes' Time Out on Ché Walker's Flesh Wound

The Front Line of Freedom

In The Front Line [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Front Line of Freedom by Brian Short,C. Watkins,John Martin Book Summary:

This book, drawing together the work of 15 scholars, is the first attempt to discover what really happened during the war in British agriculture. It shows just how closely directed agriculture and individual farmers were in wartime, and the determination with which uncooperative or 'failing' farmers might be dispossessed. It describes the tensions between agriculture and the military, showing how the ploughing up campaign added land to the national farm but just at the time when the military were taking it for airfields and training grounds. This revelatory book challenges received wisdom about farming in wartime. It is essential reading for all interested in the evolution of twentieth-century farming and in the historical origins of farming's present predicament.

If You’re Reading This . . .

In The Front Line [Pdf/ePub] eBook

If You’re Reading This . . . by Siân Price Book Summary:

"In this brilliant and profoundly moving collection of farewell letters written by servicemen and women to their loved ones, Sin Price offers a remarkable insight into the hearts and minds of some of the soldiers, sailors and airmen of the past three hundred years.Each letter provides an enduring snapshot of an impossible moment in time when an individual stares death squarely in the face. Some were written or dictated as the person lay mortally wounded; many were written on the eve of a great charge or battle; others were written by soldiers who experienced premonitions of their death, or by kamikaze pilots and condemned prisoners. They write of the grim realities of battle, of daily hardships, of unquestioning patriotism or bitter regrets, of religious fervor or political disillusionment, of unrelenting optimism or sinking morale and above all, they write of their love for their family and the desire to return to them one day.Be it an epitaph dictated on a Napoleonic battlefield, a staunch, unsentimental letter written by a Victorian officer, or an email from a soldier in modern day Afghanistan, these voices speak eloquently and forcefully of the tragedy of war and answer that fundamental human need to say goodbye."

Gulf War One

In The Front Line [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Gulf War One by Hugh McManners Book Summary:

Despite losing an eight-year war with Iran in 1988, Iraq remained the region's dominant military power. With missiles and nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, Saddam's war-experienced army comprised 260,000 troops and 2,000 tanks. But his 1990 invasion of Kuwait ended with the most efficient war victory in US history. It was the first war for the US since Vietnam, with the UK its largest non-Arab ally, and the first war fought over a resource: oil. A new 'high tech' war, it had a total of only 146 US casualties - yet health problems have since dogged thousands of coalition soldiers, and uncounted thousands of Iraqi soldiers were killed. And following the protracted suffering of the Iraq invasion and nation-building operation over a decade later, many feel it was all for nothing a Hugh McManners' original interviews for Gulf War One - with combatants from both sides; Kuwait, Iraqi and Saudi citizens; military planners and politicians; human shield hostages and Gulf War Syndrome sufferers - allow those both serving and caught up in the war to tell its history in their own words.
