Editorial Reviews

Like the Current Controversies series, this anthology series offers different perspectives on current issues. Contrasting opinions aren't emphasized; rather, a range of opinions on each subject is offered. This series helps readers out a bit more by summarizing each author's opinion in a brief paragraph at the beginning of each essay. Cloning examines the science of cloning, cloning animals, cloning and the media, cloning and the law, and whether humans should ever be cloned. Authors include reporters, scientists, professors, and lawyers, and there is an overview of the issues in the introduction and a glossary of terms as well as an annotated list of organizations to contact at the end. School Violence looks at the nature of school violence, its causes, personal narratives, and preventing school violence; many of the authors are reporters. The section on personal narratives is especially effective; the book otherwise follows the same format as Cloning. Students will welcome the information here for research papers, while teachers will appreciate the background data for class discussions. Useful for public libraries as well as high school libraries, for anyone interested in these issues. Upcoming titles in this series include Child Abuse, The Death Penalty, Drunk Driving, Extraterrestrial Life, Race and Ethnicity, Rape, and Teen Pregnancy. (Contemporary Issues Companion). 2000, Greenhaven Press, 176p, 99-049733, bibliogs, indexes, 23cm, $14.86. Ages 14 up. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick; January 2001 (Vol. 35 No. 1)
