Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Sadly, throughout history, the imperative toward progress for mankind has often conflicted with the best interests of the planet. In the 1960s, supporters of the environmental movement in Vancouver, Canada, began to oppose nuclear testing in a loosely organized series of protests and interventions. In 1972, this early organization, called the "Don't Make A Wave Committee," officially became the Greenpeace Foundation. Within a short period of time, this Canadian movement had branches around the world, united by their shared commitment to protecting the environment. Today the organization's mission covers many issues, but all of the organization's goals seek to preserve the earth's ability to sustain and nurture life in all its forms. The book's information is accompanied by detailed paragraphs set apart against variously colored backgrounds, and side bars labeled "… ON THE SCENE …" and "WHAT DO YOU THINK?" Photographic illustrations and other graphics support and add interest to the text. This book is part of the "Global Organizations" series written to provide points-of-view that inspire debate about the success of each organization and help in the evaluation of the organization's actions. It concludes with a glossary, suggestions for further reading, a list of web sites, and an index. It would be a good addition to classes teaching social and current events, in debate classes, and as a resource for AP classes. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
