—Paul Simon, former U.S. Senator, Illinois

—Anne Cohn Donnelly, executive director, National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse

"Garbarino is one of our nation's major social critics. This insightful analysis is a must-read for parents, early childhood advocates, and policy makers."

—Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology, Yale University

Childhood has become a minefield of risks—dangerous to the health and well being of children and adolescents. School violence, drugs, AIDS, poverty, uncaring communities, abusive families, and custody battles are just some of the dangers that children face daily. In this timely book, renowned child development expert James Garbarino explains how we can make choices and decisions that strengthen children and strike a blow against the social toxicity that surrounds us.
