Consumer Resource Guide: A Selected Bibliography.
Nyheim, Charlotte, Comp.; Smith-Hansgen, Sharon, Comp.
The selective bibliography contains over 1,000 citations of books, pamphlets, audiovisual materials, and teaching resources related to consumer education. It is designed not only for educators but also for individual consumers and members of consumer organizations. Contents are arranged by subject matter under ten general topics: consumer and the economy, consumer and the environment, consumer behavior/advertising, consumer classics, consumer education, consumer goods and services, consumer protection, money management, periodicals, other bibliographies, and catalogs. Almost all entries have been published since 1970, but the consumer classics section contains older material depicting the history of the consumer movement and relating to past economic situations. These include Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" (1906) and Rachael Carson's "Silent Spring" (1962). The consumer education section contains an extensive list of materials for use at all age levels, reflecting the belief that consumer education should begin at an early age and continue as an ongoing process. Entries are not annotated, but they have been chosen selectively. Information is given about author, publication date, length, price or rental fee, and publisher. (Author/AV)
