Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

During the past decade, Citizen Action groups have formed in several states to make government and corporations more accountable. Drawing on interviews with movement activists, the authors, Citizen Action leaders, describe in personal and often partisan terms the movement's evolution and its victories opposing toxic waste dumps, fighting natural gas deregulation, and helping the small farmer. They emphasize coalition building and adherence to principles such as "respect and tolerance," but unfortunately lose sight of these principles in pitting "progressive populism" (themselves) against "right-wing populism" (Reaganism and the New Right). An informative, if oversimplified account of an important political phenomenon and an update of Boyte's earlier The Backyard Revolution (1981). Jack Forman, Mesa Coll. Lib., San Diego, Cal.
Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.
