Even in Chaos Reviews


"Even in Chaos should be required reading for everyone concerned about the desperate plight of too many children in the world. As many voices in this book remind us, education is our most powerful weapon in this war." -- -Tom Brokaw
" I have done voluntary work for UNICEF and other UN agencies during military conflicts and afterwards. I found this book enthralling reading -a hands on fresh account and examination of both achievements and on-going mistakes. Children's education has always been a passion of mine. A huge thanks to all the writers and especially to Doctor Cahill."" -- -Vanessa Redgrave
I thank Dr. Cahill for bringing together the important contributions to this book and am confident that it will make us feel strong and more prepared in our commitment to better protect our learners, their teachers and all those involved in the delivery of their right to education. I believe these efforts have enabled us to make progress toward these important goals and see increasing awareness of right to education in emergencies as part of the legacy of my Presidency. -- -H.E. Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann * President of the Sixty-third Session of the United Nations General Assembly, from the foreword *
