In this accessible treatment of child labor in Africa, straightforward prose is enriched throughout with photographs that give a human face to the issues involved. The authors draw on sources ranging from scholarly studies to children's own voices. After providing a general background to the topic - debunking myths in the process - they describe the work typically done by African children in the home, as apprentices, and in commercial labor markets. They also present a clearheaded discussion of the worst, exploitive kinds of child labor. The book ends with a discussion of the effects of work on children, suggesting a variety of concrete, realistic approaches to minimizing negative consequences. This is a straightforward discussion of child labor in Africa, enriched throughout with photographs that give a human face to the issues involved.
