Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-Two adequate, if adulatory, biographies that concentrate on the peacemaking efforts of two of the world's most respected citizens. However, Lazo's almost canonization of them could lead readers to believe that they never made wrong moves or bad decisions. Eleanor Roosevelt contains a bit about her childhood and personal life. However, the focus is on her achievements as First Lady and later as head of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. Much emphasis is placed on her work in the area of civil rights and the respect she gained worldwide. Youngsters will gain a more complete picture of the woman in Rachel Toor's Eleanor Roosevelt (Chelsea, 1989) or in Russell Freedman's biography (Clarion, 1993), both for slightly older audiences. Similarly, Lech Walesa covers little of the man's personal life, but concentrates instead on his role as the leader of Solidarity in Poland. Just enough detail about the various strikes he led is given to whet readers' appetites for more. Mary Craig's biography (Gareth Stevens, 1990) is more informative. Average-quality black-and-white photographs appear in both books, but in several instances they are not in sync with the texts.-Margaret B. Rafferty, Appalachian Regional Library, West Jefferson, NC
Hazel Rochman
Part of the Peacemakers biography series, this draws heavily on Lech Walesa's autobiography, "A Way of Hope" (1987), for an account of the Polish president's life, his politics, and his rise to power as leader of the Solidarity labor movement. The tone is adulatory, and the style is fairly dull, but several direct quotes from Walesa (including his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983) add a sense of immediacy, and many full-page black-and-white photographs break up the spacious text. There are no notes, but direct quotes are attributed to titles listed in the bibliography.
