Reviews for Behind Closed Doors: Politics, Scandals and the Lobbying Industry

?Johnson's book, which is part of Greenwood's Exploring Social Issues through Literature series, quickly brings us back to the literature that heightened public awareness of inhuman, unsafe, and treacherous practices the American labor force faced and still faces....If this volume is any indication, teachers and librarians are given excellent background information to knowledgeably suggest and discuss this genre of literature.?-Against the Grain
