By: Irving B. Harris
In this compassionate and controversial book, Irving B. Harris argues that the key to breaking the cycle of poverty, hopelessness, and violence in America is very early intervention. Harris, a successful businessman who has devoted himself to children`s causes for the past forty years, insists we must provide adequate caregiving to children from birth to age three and discourage pregnancy among adolescents.
