Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This short anthology offers articles from different points of view on current issues, affording students the opportunity to compare opinions and formulate their own. An introduction provides some history and context for the discussion, and there is an annotated list of organizations to contact at the end. The other volumes in this growing series follow a similar format, offering 11 to 18 articles each focused on the single issue of the title, with each article prefaced by a short abstract. The brief articles are carefully chosen and reprinted in full, with source notes. There is less editorial input (e.g., no discussion questions) than in Greenhaven's Opposing Viewpoints series, and fewer articles. However, these are useful and up-to-date resources for any students examining current controversies. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Greenhaven Press, 23cm, bibliog, index, $10.96. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick; May 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 3)
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-In 18 short, readable essays, this book presents the pros and cons of this issue. The introduction describes the current controversy and includes a brief history of the animal-rights movement. The essays discuss medical breakthroughs achieved through animal experimentation, AIDS and cancer research, product testing on animals, military research, animal-to-human transplants, and alternatives to such testing. Written by doctors, journalists, and members of animal-rights and medical-research organizations, these essays provide an overview while showing readers that there are no easy solutions to this complex and often heated debate. A good starting point for beginning researchers, this book can also be used as supplementary material by those with a more advanced agenda. Andrew Harnack's Animal Rights (Greenhaven, 1996) uses a similar pro-con format but includes longer, more detailed articles that cover a broader range of topics. Daniel Cohen's Animal Rights (Millbrook, 1993) includes suggestions for ways to help save animals.-Dawn Amsberry, formerly at Oakland Public Library, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
