School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-In this catchall collection, the topics debated range from oil reserves to genetically engineered foods, socialized medicine, and recent U.S. foreign-policy decisions. Although most of the selections are from journals or newspapers, two of President George W. Bush's speeches are included. The book follows the series format, alternating pro and con arguments on each subject. The entries are preceded by a short introduction and questions to consider while reading the material. Lists of discussion questions and related organizations are appended. A nice touch is the periodical bibliography inserted after each chapter, tailored to the overarching subject of the entries. Although this book is useful for research, a few of the pieces, especially about fuel alternatives and hybrid cars, may appeal to the curious as well.-Carol Fazioli, Gwynedd-Mercy College, Gwynedd Valley, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
