Über diesen Titel
The media today are full of stories abut the cruel & callous side of human nature. Yet there is another side to American life, a helping, caring side that we don t often hear about. Every day, millions of people perform acts of altruism -- giving their time to help others in need. And many of them are teenagers. Meltzer pays tribute to the volunteers who have sacrificed their time, energy, & lives working against social injustice & toward a better world. From the freedom riders of the 1960s, to Amnesty Internat. youth groups who petition for the release of political prisoners, to high school envir. activists, these are inspiring stories about youth who have made a difference.From Booklist:
Gr. 7-10. With the debate raging over community service within our public schools as well as the necessity for more and more charitable agencies to pick up services from the public sector, Meltzer's book fills a gap in middle- and high-school collections for both research and simple information. Altruistic organizations such as CARE, the Peace Corps, Habitat for Humanity, and Volunteers of America as well as individual humanitarians such as Oskar Schindler, Eugene Lang (who promised college educations to 61 New York sixth-graders), and Jean-Henri Dunant (founder of the Red Cross) are all gathered together in a single volume. In source notes at the end of the book, Meltzer admits that he had a difficult time organizing the vast amounts of information into a cohesive whole. This is borne out in the lack of transition between, and sometimes even within, chapters. Yet the problem is symptomatic of what Meltzer is attempting to illustrate. Millions of people the world over, both individually and collectively, care about their fellow beings. Here that altruism is documented. Bibliography. Frances Bradburn
