From the Paper:

"Jonathan Kozol's two books, Rachel and Her Children and Savage Inequalities put actual people under the microscope of his compassionate gaze. Kozol's books demonstrate that the concept of community is one that may be seen in too limited a way in the United States. The children who are trying to become educated and the families who try to live in East Saint Louis, Illinois, certainly have a community of their own but their community does not have any of the economic resources of some of the wealthier Chicago suburbs that he uses as a contrast.
