Series Review
Readers looking to take a deep dive into activism and political engagement will be well served by this comprehensive series about the impassioned advocacy, transformative moments, and influential legislative impact of major social change movements. Landmark events, progress, challenges, and the important work of changemakers, from individual citizens to organizations and communities, are detailed. Moving from its earliest history to new generations continuing the work to maintain and expand rights, protections, and privileges, these books provide clear arguments and analysis. The focus is generally on North America, with the volume on the environment providing a more global view. Nearly all editions offer a chapter on empowering readers to find a cause and suggest ways to get involved. Sidebars explore certain subjects more in depth. Powerful photographs, both historical and contemporary, enhance the texts. Suitable for all collections, these thorough titles educate and inspire.
