Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Protecting the environment; food, hunger, and agriculture; responsible banking and investing; responsible consumerism; and peace, nonviolence, and human rights are the topics contained in this activists' manual. From the hows and whys of recycling, to whom to boycott and whom to support, Hollender offers specific responses to 120 problems in the aforementioned areas. Some of the more unusual actions: eat brown eggs only (to insure two chicken species), become a citizen diplomat, send in old war toys to be melted down for a peace statue. Informative, current, biased, easily read through or just consulted, occasionally outrageous, this work's greatest value lies in the breadth of issues treated. This will be valuable in many collections; especially for public libraries.-- Sondra Brunhumer, Western Michigan Univ. Libs., Kalamazoo
