Excerpt
Neither scientific analysis nor warmhearted concern are adequate to provide a practical understanding of how wars affect children. Without rejecting either approach, however, the author shows how a balanced idea of the problem can be formed. Drawing on his knowledge as a neuropsychiatrist and his experience as a child in wartime, he reviews the causes and effects of the sufferings involved, and makes some suggestions for a practical response. For me, this subject entails a degree of psychological danger, in that I myself am one of those war children who has had to cope with stress, resistance to stress, the sequelae, and coming to terms with those sequelae in life. This has left its mark on me and I find it difficult to talk about. My war experience is not of the wars of today, and my childhood is not a childhood of today. How shall I avoid the pitfall of subjectivism without falling into the opposite one of confining myself to the narrowly objective and scientific as some analysts do, thereby blinding themselves to the realities of both war and children?
