Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Two books that introduce all aspects of their respective topics and lead students to additional sources and organizations for further information. Shorter and less sophisticated than the "Opposing Viewpoints" series, they nevertheless give readers clear introductions to weighty contemporary issues. Interestingly written chapters are short but comprehensive. Well-chosen illustrations add visual interest and provide additional information. Lee begins with an explanation of the distinction between legal and illegal immigrants. He then enumerates the reasons illegals come here; looks at their economic impact on the U.S.; reactions to the problem; and the role of the border patrol; defines political asylum; and discusses what America's response should be to illegal aliens. Censorship presents a historical overview, then deals with rights in conflict; how time, place, and manner help to determine the exercise of free speech; and explores the issues of incitement, fighting works, obscenity, and compelling interest. Balanced introductions to two thought-provoking subjects.-Marilyn Makowski, Greenwood High School, SC
Hazel Rochman
Using a historical approach, this discussion in the Overview series looks at basic principles of free speech and free press in relation to landmark cases. Steffens starts with the Ten Commandments and the U.S. Bill of Rights, and then takes the survey right up to the recent arguments about violence and obscenity in popular music. Whether dealing with racism or antiwar activity, he demonstrates the basic paradox that "freedom and censorship can--and must--coexist." The book design is spacious, with lots of white space and occasional graphics; a long annotated list of organizations to contact and a bibliography are appended. Far from the usual library-based focus on books and access, this will be useful in social studies classes and in discussion groups dealing with the new conflicts about the Internet.
