There is a lack of information about the problems of underclass people and the effects of their situation on their children. Views on this issue were sought from young corporate and community leaders. The responses showed a high level of concern and a need for more knowledge about the effectiveness of early intervention programs for these high-risk children. Evidence and arguments are presented to begin the development of a national strategy for this population. The chapters are the following: (1) "Early Childhood Programs for Children in Poverty: a Good Place to Start" (Bernice Weissbourd, Carol Emig); (2) "Early Intervention in Cognitive Development As a Strategy for Reducing Poverty" (James Garbarino); (3) "Our Nation's Youngest Children: Who They Are and How They Are Cared For" (Eleanor S. Szanton); (4) "Recent Developments in Infant and Child Health: Health Status, Insurance Coverage and Trends in Public Health Policy" (Sara Rosenbaum); (5) "Poverty, Family, and The Black Experience" (James Comer); (6) "Equal Opportunity for Infants and Young Children: Preventive Services for Children in a Multi-Risk Environment" (Stanley Greenspan); (7) "Breaking the Cycle of Disadvantage: New Knowledge, New Tools, New Urgency" (Lisbeth B. Schorr); and (8) "Giving Children a Chance: What Role Community-Based Early Parenting Interventions?" (Judith Musick, Robert Halpern). The appendix, "Investing in Prevention: Tomorrow's Leaders and the Problem of Poverty" (Peter D. Hart) is a report on the problem of poverty prepared for the Center for National Policy.

"An unmistakable Australian icon -a smoking revolver, two piercing eyes behind a makeshift mask of armour. But beyond the armour, behind the eyes was a man both ruthless and gentle, rugged and kind - the infamous last outlaw, Ned Kelly was his name. Both revered and reviled throughout the ages Ned Kelly (John Jarratt, Wolf Creek) was an Irish-Australian battler-cum-bushranger, fiercely independent and pushed into action by the repressive colonial authorities of the time. From the creative team behind Against The Wind, accurately presented and meticulously researched to the finest detail, The Last Outlaw examines the life of Ned Kelly, and expounds the legend from early indiscretions and the formation of his gang through to the violent killings at Stringy Bark Creek, culminating in his explosive last stand and shoot out at Glenrowan. Also featuring Sigrid Thornton, Steve Bisley, Gerard Kennedy, Julia Blake, Lewis Fitz-Gerald and a throng of first-class Australian talent The Last Outlaw is a remarkable four-part miniseries presentation that deflects historical judgement and allows the legend to live on"--Container
