Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kaitlin Connors
Bailout!: Government Intervention in Business succinctly and objectively covers corporate bailouts and includes a history of government intervention in business dating back to 1970, when the government provided the Penn Central Transportation Company with $700 million to pay its creditors. Failed States: Unstable Countries in the 21st Century tackles in simple terms what exactly constitute a failed state and how a country lands in such a predicament. Further chapters cover countries presently in the media, including Iraq, Somalia, and Pakistan, among others. There are also details of those countries that have made recovery efforts, such as increased international relations and investments, coupled with investment in technology and infrastructure. The In the News series is ideal for middle and high school collections. Geared toward a lower reading level, approximately sixth grade, the information is still useful to older students as a foundation for further research. The further reading suggestions and bibliography provide the burgeoning politician or economist with a broad range of respected news sources, plus books and websites covering various views, thereby ensuring objectivity. Even for students without a special interest in the topics, these titles offer an easily comprehended and succinct approach to issues prevalent in the media and discussed in social studies classes. Librarians and teachers can also find valuable information in these titles. In the section titled "For More Information," a list of organization and business contact information offers a gateway to useful resources. With numerous photos, concise and manageable chapters, and a glossary, these books provide an excellent background for students with an interest in social sciences or a jumping off point for school assignments.
