Children of the Monsoon

David Jimenez, Andrew Rosenberg

In this award-winning essay collection, the Asia bureau chief for the leading Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, tells the story of the changing face of Asia as seen through the eyes of its youngest citizens. From a small, dispirited Thai boxer to the underground children of Mongolia, from a little girl dying of AIDS in Cambodia to a teenage monk in Tibet, these stories capture what it means to grow up in an unstable and unjust world. Here, the monsoons are as manmade as they are natural. The essays demonstrate, in poignant detail, how their cycles carry with them both unshakable fear and hope for tomorrow.
