Amazing Grace : The Lives of Children and the Conscience of a Nation (Cloth) - 95 edition

Amazing Grace : The Lives of Children and the Conscience of a Nation (Cloth) (ISBN10: 0517799995; ISBN13: 9780517799994)
ISBN13: 978-0517799994
ISBN10: 0517799995

Summary: A bestselling author despite, or perhaps because of, the disturbing news he brings readers, Kozol--whose Savage Inequalities spent four weeks on the New York Times bestseller list--speaks once again to the conscience of the country. This book offers an unforgettable, moving portrait of the lives of a handful of desperately poor children, living in the South Bronx, who retain their innocence and wonder against all odds. The author of Savage Inequalities, a >New York Times best-seller, and Rachel and Her Children, winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, tells the stories of a handful of children who have--through the love and support of their families and dedicated community leaders--not yet lost their battle with the perils of life in America's most hopeless, helpless, and dangerous neighborhoods. A gently written work, Amazing Grace asks questions that are at once political and theological. What is the value of a child's life? What exactly do we plan to do with those whom we appear to have defined as economically and humanly superfluous? How cold -- how cruel, how tough -- do we dare be?
