Description

Throws a light on the ruthless manipulation of children by big business - and on society's failure to protect them. Children, it argues, are now perceived as a resource to be mined for profit. It takes us on a dystopian journey through a world of cynical exploitation, callous neglect, ill-informed parents and governments that look the other way.
