Description: Without rhetoric, but drawing extensively upon the words of children, parents, and priests, Amazing Grace makes clear that the postmodern ghetto is not a social accident but is credited and sustained by greed, neglect, racism, and expedience. It asks us 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 we have defined as economically and humanly superfluous? A painful and essential book to read at an increasingly cold hour of our nation's history.

Barbara Ehrenreich

Through public and private indifference, we have guaranteed that our poor, inner-city children will lead lives stunted by heartbreak, violence, and disease. Kozol reminds us that, with each casualty, aprt of the beauty of the world is extinguished.

Amazing Grace is written in a measured tone, but you will wonder at the end, with Kozol, why the God of love does not return to earth with his avenging sword in hand.
