Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - KLIATT Review
This Contemporary Issues Companion series examines current social issues from a variety of viewpoints. In Depression, psychiatrists, journalists, and sufferers offer articles that look at what depression is, give personal perspectives on depression, and discuss treatments for depression and the debate over antidepressants. Teenagers may be especially interested in the articles on antidepressants' link to adolescent suicide and a story of teenage depression, but such topics as postpartum depression, depression's role in bodily disease, and alternative therapies are also considered. Artificial Intelligence looks at emerging AI technologies, humanoid robots, and AI that equals or surpasses human intelligence. Steroids examines what steroids are, why they're used, and steroids in sports, provides personal tales relating to steroid use, and considers how society should deal with them. Teen Alcoholism considers the effects of teenage drinking, patterns of teenage alcohol consumption, underage drinking, and current perspectives on underage alcohol policy, and also offers personal narratives on teenage alcohol abuse. In each book, an introduction lays out the issues, and brief summaries precede each article. An annotated list of organizations to contact is appended. The variety of perspectives makes these volumes a good place for students to start researching for personal or academic use. Age Range: Ages 15 to adult. REVIEWER: Paula Rohrlick (Vol. 42, No. 1)
