New York Daily News reporter Juan Gonzalez takes as his beat the streets and projects of America’s inner cities and the barrios across its southern borders. In these vivid dispatches he reports from the frontline of a social crisis—inside New York and Los Angeles, across the Rio Grande to Mexico’s maquiladoras, through to Haiti, Honduras and Cuba.
