Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—This update to the 2006 edition tackles current subjects such as stem cell research and, even more topically, the recent subprime lending debacle. Each topic opens with a general introduction, followed by articles offering different points of view. The first two sections feature opinion pieces on why people should behave ethically and what motivates ethical behavior, while the latter two sections delve into nitty-gritty issues such as cloning, physician-assisted suicide, and business ethics. The articles present a balance of positions, so debaters and researchers are likely to find support for their own viewpoints. While more traditional print sources such as Newsweek are represented, blogs and websites such as The Huffington Post are also included. Each article is introduced with questions to consider while reading, and a periodical bibliography supplements the views presented in the chapter. A detailed index, annotated list of organizations, and bibliography of books are appended. A worthy successor to the older edition.—Carol Fazioli, Gwynedd-Mercy College, Gwynedd Valley, PA
