We've recently added a special report to highlight the publication of Nineteen: The Lives of Jakarta's Street Vendors. There are links to videos and some great photos.

It's a whole lot more than just a pretty coffee table book though; it brings the vendors' tales to life and connects the reader to their powerful stories. You can visit the new addition here: http://www.mercycorps.org/countries/indonesia/15715.
