This set comprises 40 volumes covering 19th and 20th century European and American authors. These volumes will be available as a complete set, mini boxed sets (by theme) or as individual volumes. This second set compliments the first 68 volume set of Critical Heritage published by Routledge in October 1995.
The author describes the horrors of Orphanage Number One in Bucharest, the poverty and endemic corruption which he faced on a daily basis and his struggle to raise awareness in both jurisdictions of the damage inflicted upon the children by the general indifference to their plight.
The book also recounts the remarkable friendship which was forged with a Bucharest University graduate who became interpreter, guide and, ultimately, Godfather to the child who was rescued.
