Good condition in paperback.

In the 1950s Robert Coles began studying, living among, and, above all, listening to American children. The results of his efforts-revealed in five volumes published between 1967 and 1977-constitute one of the most searching and vigorous social studies ever undertaken by one person in the United States. Here, heard often in their own voices, are America's 'children of crisis': n African American children caught in the throes of the South's racial integration; n The children of impoverished migrant workers in Appalachia; n Children whose families were transformed by the migration from South to North, from rural to urban communities; n Latino, Native American, and Eskimo children in the poorest communities of the American West; n The children of America's wealthiest families confronting the burden of their own privilege. This volume restores to print a masterwork of psychological and sociological inquiry-a book that, in its focus on how children learn and develop in the face of rapid change and social upheaval, speaks directly and pointedly to our own times.
