OUP on children and war

Oxford University Press has won the rights to a "ground-breaking book chronicling the lost stories of children embroiled in war" from historian Dr Emma Butcher.

OUP trade publisher Luciana O’Flaherty acquired world English-language rights to Children in the Modern Age of War from Kirsty McLachlan at David Godwin Associates.

Butcher, who works in the University of Leicester’s history faculty, specialises in war and culture, and has written extensively on child soldiers.
