"Amazing Grace," by Jonathan Kozol. Crown. 286 Pages. $23

The author's latest book is his most subdued, with little of the overt righteous outrage of his earlier works. Instead, he uses a more narrative, less didactic prose style to introduce readers to individual children who are being destroyed by poverty. He steps aside and allows society's victims to speak for themselves.
