Children in the Streets: Latin America's Lost Generation.
Rizzini, Irene; Lusk, Mark W.
Children and Youth Services Review, v17 n3 p391-400 1995
Presents an overview of the situation of street children and youth in urban Latin America. Findings from numerous studies throughout the region are synthesized. Suggests that economic factors underlie the marginalization of vast numbers of Latin American children. The result is the exclusion of many of the region's children from meaningful participation in society and its institutions. (Author/AA)
