"A Rutgers urban studies and community health professor, Schneider is well qualified to make sense of the welter of data about how U.S. children live and die, flourish and flounder today. Throughout our history, she notes, 'the concept of childhood [has] expanded or contracted depending on the political needs of special interest groups,' but childhood was and remains 'a variable experience deeply dependent upon race, ethnicity, and family income.' As she compiles information about the health, education, and social and economic risks American children face today, Schneider goes beyond statistical averages to pursue 'differences in risk based on age, gender, race, ethnicity, and geography' and uses stories of how these abstract risks affect the lives of individual kids to bring her analysis to life. In response to deficit hawks and budget buzzards, she holds that it 'is' possible to identify the children at greatest risk and that we 'know' which programs are most likely to be cost-effective in reducing the risks they face. The real question, she argues, is not what we should do, but how much we are willing to spend to reduce the current risk levels for American children." -- Mary Carroll in BOOKLIST.. First Edition.
