This unique book offers insight into a new social science concept, authoritative communities. Unlike any other volume, Kline's work facilitates the continuing dialogue about the needs of children and teens and society's responsibility to nurture its greatest human capital. The report that led to the development of this volume, Hardwired to Connect, identified a need in today's children and youth and communicated a solution that society believes is valid.
