Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Primer for the 1990s and Beyond, Randy Shaw takes a broader approach, showing how activists for anything from the environment to AIDS policy to school reform can influence politicians and the media, form alliances and take direct action (June, Univ. of California, $17.95 ISBN 0-520-20317-8; cloth $50 -20315-1). A tighter focus is provided by Richard Mintzer, author of Volunteering in New York City: Your Guide to Working Small Miracles in the Big Apple. Divided into sections on art and culture, children, animals, the homeless, libraries, seniors and more, it gives introductory information on what to expect and a listing of organizations (June, Walker, $10.95 ISBN 0-8027-7481-4).
