Kurzbeschreibung

6. August 1998
Through innovative fieldwork and ethnographic writing, 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 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 Brazilian city. But all around them figure activists, politicians, researchers and a global crisis of childhood.

Pressestimmen

'Hecht's work is graceful, thorough, and level-headed. This book is a much needed contribution to the literature of Brazil, of children, and of anthropology. It will no doubt be read and argued for years to come.' Robin Nagle, author of Claiming the Virgin: The Broken Promise of Liberation Theology in Brazil

'Hecht has been very lucky in the appropriation of the ethnographer's tape recorder by the street children themselves to hold their own 'radio workshops'. As a result, this work achieves something very special: the children themselves set the frame and limits of the otherwise inevitable and predictable outsider's sympathetic discourse on their plight. Never in ethnography has the agency of the subject's voice been so creatively present; never have the stories of such children who partly stand for contemporary Brazil been so plainly compelling.' George Marcus, Rice University

'A moving, provocative study that probes below the surface of everyday Brazilian life … This is ethnography at its best: riveting, compassionate, pithy, handsomely illustrated with photographs, always aware of the larger social and political context.' Robert M. Levine, University of Miami

Über das Produkt

This book lays bare the received truths about the lives of Brazilian street children. 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.

Einleitungssatz
FEBEM, as it was generally called by the children, or CAP, as the facility was officially know after 1990, was Recife's "temporary" holding tank for juvenile delinguents and lost children for no less than 29 years. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

5.0 von 5 Sternen A harrowing look at street children in Brazil 8. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It has been said that there are two Brazils--the"firstworld" modern archipelago where the rich lived behindwalled compounds, own several houses and apartments, and buy consumer items without regard for price. The rest of the country lives in the Third World--in poverty. Anthropologist Tobias Hecht applies careful, compassionate research and study to the urban dimension of lower class life. On par with Nancy Scheper-Hughes, the book brilliantly brings the tribulations and small triumphs of homeless children to life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent, Intriguing Book 23. Dezember 2000
Von "naomiii" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book to use for research for my term paper on Brazilian Street Children. Although I was already interested in this subject, I didn't really get into it until I started reading this book. It is very intriguing because it isn't just an outsider's point of view- Tobias Hecht includes numerous interviews with street children he knew well, and stories about the time he spent with these children getting to know them. He also looks at the issues concerning street children from many angles, not from a biased point-of-view, so as to make it more interesting. It's a fascinating topic and I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about this subject, even if it isn't for a term paper.

5.0 von 5 Sternen not for sure 24. März 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm not for sure about this book. I got it for my daughter for her college classes that she sent me a list of books she needs for the up coming semester in the Summer for her Winter classes. I'm guessing she likes it. She getting good grades in the class and hasn't said anything to me about any problems with the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Few moral judgements 23. Oktober 2003
Von Jennifer Herron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It was helpful to read a non-Christian study on street children. It was definitely more sociological and anthropological than most books I've read concerning children at risk, but I appreciated the objectivity. Hecht makes few moral judgments, but paints a picture of a daily reality for street children of northeast Brazil.
