Summary
Every morning Chicagoans wake up to the same stark headlines that read like some macabre score: "13 shot, 4 dead overnight across the city," and nearly every morning the same elision occurs: what of the nine other victims? As with war, much of our focus on inner-city violence is on the death toll, but the reality is that far more victims live to see another day and must cope with their injuries--both physical and psychological--for the rest of their lives. Renegade Dreams is their story. Walking the streets of one of Chicago's most violent neighborhoods--where the local gang has been active for more than fifty years--Laurence Ralph talks with people whose lives are irrecoverably damaged, seeking to understand how they cope and how they can be better helped
