Rosen’s book, Armies of the Young: Child Soldiers in War and Terrorism, garnered considerable public attention.[3] [4] The book discusses three case studies: Jewish children fighting the Germans in World War II, child soldiers in Sierra Leone, and Palestinian child fighters both in the 1930s and 40s and during the First Intifada, in the context of political theories about the ethics of children becoming soldiers.[5]

Rosen was active in the campaign against blood diamonds.[6]
