Within Our Reach: Breaking the Cycle of Disadvantage<BR/><BR/><BR/>This is a book that can be appreciated on many levels. Lisbeth Schorr, assisted by the able pen of journalist-husband Daniel Schorr, has crafted a gripping chronicle of the crises facing children and families in the United States today. The reader will not quickly forget the poignant vignettes of the children whose lives are touched by abuse and neglect, school failure, adolescent pregnancy, drug abuse, poverty and crime.Was this review helpful?
