About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Sisung, Kelle S.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-The 150 organizations included in this volume are defined as groups "of individuals, united together for a common cause, that [attempt] to influence public policy." Among those included are the NAACP, Sierra Club, AFL-CIO, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, ALA, and AMA. Each alphabetical entry begins by noting the organization's date of establishment, number of employees and members, and contact information. The essays that follow range in length from four to seven pages and are subdivided into commentary on the group's mission, structure, "Primary Functions," "Programs," and other topics, and each one concludes with a bibliography. Sections covering "Current Political Issues" often incorporate case studies that add interest. Occasional boxed biographies and black-and-white photographs, graphs, and line drawings accompany the entries. A table of contents that lists the organizations by type (economic, single issue, or social action) and an extensive chronology of U.S. history precede the entries. Although information concerning most of the groups is available on the Internet and in the U.S. Government Manual (Bernan), this accessible volume allows for comparative studies. The attractive format and clear writing make it a useful research tool.-Priscilla Bennett, State University of West Georgia, Carrollton
