Does the business of daily living distance us from life's mysteries? Do most Americans value spiritual thinking more as a hobby than as an all-encompassing approach to life? Will the concept of the soul be defunct after the next few generations?

Children of crisis; a study of courage and fear by Robert Coles( Book )

38 editions published between 1964 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 2,042 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruby was six years old when it began. She came, by chance, to be the only Negro child entering one of the previously segregated schools in New Orleans. For weeks, angry whites mounted a boycott protesting her presence. Each day, accompanied to the door by her mother, Ruby walked past a threatening mob to school. She heard obscenities, insults and from one white woman the particularly fearful threat of death by food poisoning. How can a child of six survive such an ordeal? What lends ordinary people like Ruby, her parents, and the parents of the other children who accompanied her the courage and endurance to outface a mob? What prompts a grown woman to threaten the life of a small child? The author spent years in the South seeking answers to such questions. The case cited above is one of more than twenty explored in this book. The result is a work that demonstrates how psychiatric and psychoanalytic concepts can be applied carefully and relevantly to complicated political and historical issues.--adapted from publisher's description

The youngest parents : teenage pregnancy as it shapes lives by Robert Coles( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prominent child psychiatrist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Coles asks us to shed our preconceptions and listen to the compelling voices of young women and men who are soon to become parents, though barely out of childhood themselves. These teenage parents are black, white, and Hispanic; city dwellers and residents of small towns; rich and poor. From conversations with them, Dr. Coles weaves a subtle yet dramatic narrative that reveals the aspirations and apprehensions of these "youngest parents," whose prospects aren't very promising and whose assumptions aren't always ones that he, or we, share. Dr. Coles's text is accompanied by photographic essays by two outstanding American photographers. Jocelyn Lee, professor of photography at the Maine College of Art, lived alongside young mothers in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Nova Scotia, and Texas, exploring their daily lives. John Moses, a pediatrician and photographer, worked for several years with teenage parents in North Carolina, and his pictures show the pride and tenderness they've found in family life
