In this daring new study, anthropologist David M. Rosen investigates how our perceptions of the child soldier have changed radically over the past two centuries. Examining everything from Andrew Jackson’s time as an adolescent prisoner of war to the shared etymology of the words “infantry” and “infant,” Child Soldiers in the Western Imagination offers a cure for our widespread historical amnesia.
