About this title

Synopsis:

Filled with fascinating insights into the collective emotional life of inner-city kids, this book is also a highly original history of the erosion of urban community life since World War II.

From the Back Cover:

A poignant and eye-opening look at the hidden world of poor black children: the people middle-class Americans most fear and misunderstand.
