School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-In a straightforward, factual, yet readable style, Aaseng carefully examines the jobs v. environment issue. He begins with a history that brings readers from 1691 to the present. Then, he considers both sides of the controversy in a balanced manner supported by relevant documentation. He concludes that proponents of the ``antigreen movement'' miss the entire picture, disproving claims that environmentalists negatively impact the economy and demonstrating the contrary. He does acknowledge, however, that changes required to maintain a healthy environment can cause pain to some people and can be expensive. Proposed solutions that best protect the Earth now and in the future with the least disruption to workers' lives are discussed. This book is filled with impressive examples of how thoughtful planning and cooperation can bring employment and preservation together. Fair-to good-quality black-and-white photographs are well placed and have pertinent captions. The information is current and well documented; the helpful reading list contains recent titles. A fine complement to Thomas G. Aylesworth's Government and the Environment (Enslow, 1993) and an excellent choice for reports, debates, or simply general information.-Diane P. Tuccillo, Mesa Public Library, AZ
