Because nonprofit and voluntary organizations are primary vehicles of citizen action and participation, they serve as important mechanisms to understand how the needs of children can be heard in the policymaking process and how the quality of children's lives can be improved. In Who Speaks for America's Children, leading experts in children's health policy, education policy, community organizing, and sociology focus on the ways nonprofit organizations and community groups influence policymaking on children's issues. Seven chapters frame the issues, raise critical questions, and explore opportunities for further study.

Rabbi Seymour N. Siegel presents four theses in the main address entitled "American Jews and Political Life": (1) Jewish voters as a group are more liberal than the general voting public. (2) Jewish organizations generally represent the views of their constituencies. (3) The liberal orientation in the Jewish community is true neither to Jewish interests nor to Jewish teachings, for both are conservative on social and political issues. (4) There are signs of a turn toward conservatism within the Jewish community. Responses to the theses are offered by Marshall J. Breger, a New York Law School professor and visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation; Rabbi Joshua O. Haberman, Washington Hebrew Congregation (Reform); and David Saperstein, co-director and counsel of the Religious Action Center (Union of American Hebrew Congregations and Central Conference of American Rabbis), with a final word from the main speaker. Included are a foreword, an "Exchange with the Audience," and notes. (KWL)

First published in 1965, this is a unique text in the history of the American Civil Rights Movement. Robert Penn Warren interviewed a wide range of African American leaders, activists, and artists across the country, among them Martin Luther King, Malcom X, and James Baldwin. Sections from the transcripts of these interviews are combined with the author’s reflections on the interviewees and the Civil Rights Movement as a whole to create a powerful oral history of this all-important struggle. A new introduction by David W. Blight places Warren’s book in historical perspective. " In this new edition introduced by the eminent historian David Blight, Who Speaks for the Negro? reveals a provocative admixture of history's variance. Warren's book is a burden of the past from which we cannot escape. It summons us to awaken a more vital national heartbeat of reparations for an American dilemma."—Houston Baker, Vanderbilt University

Analyzes the activities and reactions of two Zionist organizations in America during the Second World War - the Hadassah Women's Zionist Organization (and the position of Henrietta Szold) and the American and World Jewish Congress. Traces the radicalization of anti-Jewish measures in Europe and the American Zionist organizations' lack of adequate response. Argues that they were more preoccupied with the postwar settlement and the growth of Palestine as a Jewish homeland than with the fate of European Jewry. Rescue attempts were minimal and only aimed at sending refugees to Palestine. Contends that even when clear information was given about the murder of European Jews, there was little response. Attacks Zionist historiography for its use of the Holocaust as propaganda for the State of Israel. Gives examples of what could have been done by Jewish organizations. Pp. 271-319 contain documents.
