KIRKUS REVIEW

The focus on jobs for the disadvantaged that contain valid possibilities for growth and advancement has come to be seen by a wide variety of citizen groups as a key approach to some of the most exacerbated social problems of our day."" Hence the conceptualization and activation of New Careers, based on a strategy of jobs first, with built-in training, providing career ladders for non-professionals. In this orientation, professionals and non-professionals will work together toward mutual goals ""in the conviction that the greatest social gains are achieved when public interest and private self interest confirm one another."" The editors squire a score or so of experts to explore new careers in social welfare, in the schools, in health services, in corrections and police, and in government and industry. A new and valuable concept to combat un- and under-employment ably presented.
