There has been

Reviews of Jacob Holdt's museum exhibitions ....and life
Reviews from his exhibitions in mostly Europe in recent years
of the book
As the book has never been officially published in America (my intention
was to give the homeless and street people a chance to sell it), there
have been very few reviews in the media. But many universities use the
book as a textbook and often send copies of the students' writings back
to Jacob Holdt.

reactions to the slide show
In many colleges students have been writing papers in classes about the
