Migrations : humanity in transition by Sebastião Salgado( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and German and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In photographs taken over seven years and across more than thirty-five countries, Migrations documents the epic displacement of the world's people at the close of the twentieth century." "Migrations documents the world-altering phenomenon of mass migration. Salgado's images collectively serve as a metaphor for the hundreds of millions of people who, in an elemental struggle for survival, have ruptured their ties with land and tradition in a flight toward other destinies. Salgado gives us a clearer picture of the enormous social and political transformations now occurring in a world divided between excess and need."--Jacket

Sahel : the end of the road by Sebastião Salgado( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1984 Sebastiao Salgado began what would be a fifteen-month project of photographing the drought-stricken Sahel region of Africa in the countries of Chad, Ethiopia, Mali, and the Sudan, where approximately one million people died from extreme malnutrition and related causes. Working with the humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders, Salgado documented the enormous suffering and the great dignity of the refugees. This early work became a template for his future photographic projects about other afflicted people around the world. Since then, Salgado has again and again sought to give visual voice to those millions of human beings who, because of military conflict, poverty, famine, overpopulation, pestilence, environmental degradation, and other forms of catastrophe, teeter on the edge of survival. With supporting narratives by Orville Schell, Fred Ritchin, and Eduardo Galeano, this first U.S. edition brings some of Salgado's earliest and most important work to an American audience for the first time. Twenty years after the photographs were taken, Sahel: The End of the Road is still relevant."--BOOK JACKET

The impact of war on children : a review of progress since the 1996 United Nations report on the impact of armed conflict on children by Graça Machel( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The impact of armed conflict on children is devastating and total. War wounds children's bodies and destroys their spirit. Using examples from around the world, this book analyses the special vulnerabilities of children when families and communities are torn apart, schools are destroyed and stability shattered. Children are routinely forced into active combat, sexually exploited and abandoned to malnutrition, starvation and disease. This book demonstrates how war's legacy of horror continues to affect children long after hostilities cease, especially through landmines and unexploded ordnance, the proliferation of small arms, the instability of refugee existence and the spread of HIV/AIDS. The toll demands an urgent response to protect children everywhere."--Jacket
