Each of the book's stories recounts a life Fine has touched, while illustrating a principle of his 8-step program for self-discovery and renewal--a program based on the teachings of the Hebrew philosopher Maimonides, whose teachings remain as relevant and powerful a guide to inner growth and spiritual reawakening on the cusp of the 21st century as when written in the 12th century. Times Square Rabbi dramatically illustrates how crisis can produce profound transformation, and how one person can make a difference in the lives of others. ISBN 156838145X.

Grossfeld, Stan. Lost Futures: Our Forgotten Children . New York: Aperture, 1997. $45.00. Review by Brian Quinby: "For those of us whose work is with children, Boston Globe Associate Editor and two time Pulitzer-Prize winner (among a whole host of other awards) Stan Grossfeld has produced an impressive body of work that begs a place on our shelves. Grossfeld has, over time, allowed his camera to drift from its assigned focus to that of what our world is doing to our children. In sections ranging from 'Dispair in the Land of Hope,' ' Children of the Harvest,' 'Dirt Poor: Haiti and Madagascar,' 'Profiting from Child Labor,' 'Children for Sale,' and 'Living with the Dead' (just to name a few, Gossfeld gives us images and text that are not for the squeamish. These are the photographs of the nightmares that we have created and can not escape ... a little boy harvesting crops in a Florida field ... a five-year-old who lost his hand in a converyor belt wondering 'Ma, are you still gonna to love me with one hand?'... a sixteen-year-old girl in her Mexico City sewer home high on glue ... a fifteen-year-old prostitute in Bangkok wearing the number 29 so she can be easily identified by prospective clients . . . No, these are not happy pictures and this is not a happy book that will grace middle-class coffee tables. This book is about shame . . . yours, mine, ours . . . that we, in this day and age, would do this to children. Buy this book. Buy this book because we need to be reminded that this is wrong and this must stop if we are ever to become the civilized world that we claim to be. Buy this book because Grossfeld is donating his royalties to UNICEF." ISBN 0893816965.

Hecht, Tobias. At Home in the Street: Street Children of Northeast Brazil . Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1998. Hardcover $59.95. Through modest, sober and honest ethnography, Hecht lays bare the received truths about the lives of Brazilian street children. This book changes the terms of the debate, asking not why there are so many homeless children in Brazil but why, given the oppressive alternative of home life in the shantytowns, there are in fact so few. Speaking in recorded sessions, street children asked one another questions that even the most experienced researcher would be unlikely to pose. Guided by the children's questions, Hecht cuts through the hysteria and hyperbole surrounding street children in Brazil. ISBN 0521591325 (also available in paperback, ISBN 0521598699).
