In this solidly researched book, the authors demonstrate that the knowledge and techniques exist to decrease the incidence of welfare dependency, poor single-parent families and alienated, uneducated youth. In addition to providing a detailed account of the problem, they describe twenty-four programs that have proved successful in changing the lives of seriously disadvantaged children.

This book, emphasizing the necessity for intensive, knowledgeably planned and staffed social services for young children, families, and adolescents identified as being at risk, picks up where Marian Wright Edelman's excellent Families in Peril ( LJ 3/1/87) left off. Schorr describes programs that have worked to weaken the cycle of disadvantagesome short-term, limited demonstration models; others (community health centers, Headstart) of longer duration and broader scale. She persuasively argues for America's self-interest in intervening to change the odds for these disadvantaged individuals and urges public support for leaders who will actively promote constructive action. Well-researched, well-documented, well-written, this is highly recommended. Suzanne W. Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology, Alfred
