Consumer Education Bibliography.
New York Public Library, NY.; Office of Consumer Affairs, Washington, DC.
This second edition, annotated bibliography contains over 4,000 books, pamphlets, periodical articles, audiovisual aids, and teacher materials relating to consumer interests and consumer education. The recent proliferation of materials has made it impossible to produce an exhaustive listing. The authors instead have attempted to provide an overview of the field which will be useful to consumers, educators, school and public libraries, and community information centers. Major categories in the bibliography are: consumer classics; consumer and the economy; consumer behavior; consumer protection; fraud, deception and other consumer concerns; agencies and organizations providing services and sources of redress for consumers; consumer and the environment; money management; consumer goods and services; consumer education; and childrens' books. A subject index is provided. ED 037 560 is the first edition of the bibliography. (Author/JLB)
