520    Life on the Malecón is a narrative ethnography of the 
       lives of street children and youth living in Santo Domingo,
       Dominican Republic, and the non-governmental organizations
       that provide social services for them. Writing from the 
       perspective of an anthropologist working as a street 
       educator with a child welfare organization, Jon M. Wolseth
       follows the intersecting lives of children, the 
       institutions they come into contact with, and the 
       relationships they have with each other, their families, 
       and organization workers. Often socioeconomic conditions 
       push these children to move from their homes to the 
       streets, but sometimes they themselves may choose the 
       allure of the perceived freedoms and opportunities that 
       street life has to offer. What they find, instead, is 
       violence, disease, and exploitation -- the daily reality 
       through which they learn to maneuver and survive. Wolseth 
       describes the stresses, rewards, and failures of the 
       organizations and educators who devote their resources to 
       working with this population. the portrait of Santo 
       Domingo's street children and youth population that 
       emerges is of a diverse community with variations that may
       be partly related to skin color, gender, and class. The 
       conditions for these youth are changing as the economy of 
       the Dominican Republic changes. Although the children at 
       the core of this book live and sleep on avenues and plazas
       and in abandoned city buildings, they are not necessarily 
       glue- and solvent-sniffing beggars or petty thieves on the
       margins of society. Instead, they hold a key position in 
       the service sector of an economy centered on tourism. Life
       on the Malecón offers a window into the complex 
       relationships children and youth construct in the course 
       of mapping out their social environment. Using a child-
       centered approach, Wolseth focuses on the social lives of 
       the children by relating the stories that they themselves 
       tell as well as the activities he observes. -- Provided by
