Description
2016 Democratic Nominee for President of the United States In celebration of the tenth anniversary of It Takes a Village, this splendid edition includes photographs and a new Introduction by Hillary Rodham Clinton. A decade ago, then First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton chronicled her quest--both deeply personal and, in the truest sense, public--to help make our society into the kind of village that enables children to become smart, able, resilient adults. It Takes a Village is "a textbook for caring....Filled with truths that are worth a read, and a reread" (The Dallas Morning News). For more than thirty-five years, Senator Clinton has made children her passion and her cause. Her long experience--not only through her roles as mother, daughter, sister, and wife but also as advocate, legal expert, and public servant--has strengthened her conviction that how children develop and what they need to succeed are inextricably entwined with the society in which they live and how well it sustains and supports its families and individuals. In other words, it takes a village to raise a child. In her new Introduction, Senator Clinton reflects on how our village has changed over the last decade--from the impact of the Internet to new research in early child development and education. She discusses issues of increasing concern--security, the environment, the national debt--and looks at where we have made progress and where there is still work to be done. It Takes a Village has become a classic. As relevant as ever, this anniversary edition makes it abundantly clear that the choices we make today about how we raise our children and how we support families will determine how our nation will face the challenges of this century.

Description
First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton made children her passion and her cause. Her experience with children strengthened her conviction that how children develop and what they need to succeed is inextricably entwined with the society in which they live and how well it sustains and supports its families and individuals. In other words, it takes a village to raise a child. This book chronicles her quest to discover how we can make our society into the kind of village that enable children to grow into able, caring, resilient adults. It is time, Mrs. Clinton believes, to acknowledge that we have to make some changes for children's sake. Advances in technology and the global economy along with other developments in society have brought us much good, but they have also stressed the fabric of family life, leaving us and our children poorer in many ways -- physically, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually. She doesn't believe that we should, or can, turn back the clock. False nostalgia for "family values" is no solution. Nor is it useful to make an all-purpose bogeyman or savior of "government." But by looking honestly at the condition of our children, be sifting the past for clues to the structure that once bound us together, by identifying places where our "village" is flourishing, and, most important, be listening to the children themselves, we can begin to create for our children the better tomorrow that they deserve.
