Synopsis: Activists are committed individuals who seek to correct perceived problems in society by educating the public, taking direct action, and urging government officials to act. There are activism opportunities in politics and with government agencies, at colleges and universities, in law offices, with nonprofit advocacy organizations and foundations, in court systems, in foreign countries, and in countless other settings.

Careers in Focus: Activism profiles 20 careers for motivated people who want to make a difference in a rewarding position.

Job profiles include:

-Animal activists
-Community organizers
-Elder law attorneys
-Federal and state officials
-Grant administrators
-Health advocates
-Human rights advocates
-Lobbyists
-Public interest lawyers
-Victim advocates.

From Booklist: The long-running Careers in Focus series adds two more fine volumes to help young people narrow down their career possibilities. In each title, an introduction gives a general idea of the types of jobs found in a broad area followed by short chapters, which break down the details of what it takes to do a specific job. Each section discusses the type of tasks someone in that job does, the education requirements, employers who hire people in the field, where the job takes place (indoors, outdoors, etc.), and the all-important earnings information on how much one could expect to make at first and after advancement. Activism is a little unusual in pulling together fields that are more loosely linked, such as environmental activists or elder law attorneys, and some of the sections have so many different careers within them that they could be broken out into books of their own. The format is clean and the writing clear and down-to-earth, giving students a realistic glimpse into what it might be like to have these jobs and what they need to do now to work toward them. Grades 7-12. --Susan Dove Lempke
