In celebration of the tenth anniversary of It Takes a
Village, this splendid edition includes photographs and a
new Introduction by Senator 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
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.
