About the book:

Paperback. Pub Date: 1998 Pages: 284 Publisher: Camidge. University Press Through Innovative fieldwork and ethnographic writing. Hecht lays bare the received truths about the lives of azilian street children. This book changes the terms of the Debate. Asking not why there are so many homeless children in azil but why. given the oppressive alternative of home life in the shantytowns. there are in fact so few. Speaking in recorded sessions they called 'radio workshops'. street children asked one another questions that even the most experienced researcher would be unlikely to pose. At the center of this study are the children who play. steal. sleep. dance and die in the streets of a azilian city. But all around them figure activists. politicians. researchers and a global crisis of childhood.
