Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Discrimination, reverse discrimination, and affirmative action are subjects that often cause unease. It can be difficult to face such subjects objectively when personal feelings arise to cloud the issues. This resource helps teens use their critical thinking tools to compare and contrast the views of many different types of people, from political activists and scholars to everyday citizens. After studying the varied essays, students should have enough information to form their own positions. The book is organized into four chapters that discuss whether discrimination is a serious problem, whether claims of reverse discrimination are valid, whether affirmative action is an effective remedy, and whether there can be an end to discrimination in the future. The four to eight essays that comprise each chapter are followed by a periodical bibliography at the end. Sidebars of quotations and black-and-white cartoons accompany each essay that is prefaced with questions for the reader to consider while reading. At the end of the book, suggested topics for further discussion are provided along with a list of organizations to contact, a book bibliography, and a comprehensive index. Teens will read this assignment-centered book if they are given a paper on the topic of discrimination or if they are to debate the subject. As such, it provides solid, up-to-date sources with a variety of valid viewpoints to consider. It is a recommended purchase for most high school and public library collections. VOYA CODES: 4Q 1P S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; No YA will read unless forced to for assignments; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2003, Greenhaven, 224p.; Index. Illus.Biblio., PLB. Ages 15 to 18.

School Library Journal
Gr 9 UpIn light of media concepts such as the white-male backlash and the realities of California's Proposition 187, discrimination has reasserted itself as a topic of contention. This timely series title divides a subject into three or four aspects and then reprints pertinent material to fit the point/counterpoint format. The extent to which discrimination is a national problem, its causes, the validity of claims of reverse discrimination, and ways society can fight to end it are addressed by writers, scholars, and media personalities. They argue their points passionately, but the collection offers an evenhanded overview. The questions at the beginning of each article help to focus readers' attention, while listings of magazine articles at the end of each section can lead readers to further information. An additional bibliography of books, a serviceable index, and a list of organizations to contact complete the presentation. A solid choice for students doing research, preparing for debates, or those simply interested in the many aspects of this complex issue.Carol Fazioli, Cardinal Hayes Library, Manhattan College, NY
