Comparative Education Review, v45 n1 p127-39 Feb 2001
Reviews five books on child labor, published 1997-2000, with reference to the International Labour Organization's 1999 convention that retreats from its previous hard stance on child labor. Discusses street children; public policy on child labor, child welfare, and school attendance; types of children's work; and working children as agents entitled to participate in discussions about their own welfare.
