From Booklist:

Reviewed with Patrice Cassedy's Law Enforcement.

Gr. 6-12. The Careers for the Twenty-First Century series promises to be an exceptional addition to any career resource collection. The attractive covers as well as the content and design clearly indicate that these titles offer more than the standard career books. These two volumes combine concrete, varied, and multifaceted information with often gripping sociological and historical facts. Black-and-white photographs on nearly every page help dramatize the excitement, challenges, and dangers of the careers. Sidebars cover subjects such as gender bias, technology, and history-making events related to the profession. Far beyond the quick, easy facts required for those often tedious career research assignments, these books offer a layered, complex view of each job and give readers a good idea of the rewards and drawbacks of a life in either profession. Well-documented chapter notes are included, as well as a bibliography of books, periodicals, and Web sites, and a list of organizations to contact. Roger Leslie
