Editorial Reviews

This short anthology offers articles from different points of view on current issues, affording students the opportunity to compare opinions and formulate their own. An introduction provides some history and context for the discussion, and there is an annotated list of organizations to contact at the end. The other volumes in this growing series follow a similar format, offering 11 to 18 articles each focused on the single issue of the title, with each article prefaced by a short abstract. The brief articles are carefully chosen and reprinted in full, with source notes. There is less editorial input (e.g., no discussion questions) than in Greenhaven's Opposing Viewpoints series, and fewer articles. However, these are useful and up-to-date resources for any students examining current controversies. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Greenhaven Press, 128p, 23cm, bibliog, index, $10.96. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick; May 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 3)

Gr 9 Up-This "debate in a book" gives a broad overview of the subject by leading advocates on all sides. The 14 articles were originally published between 1996 and 1999. "Biotechnology Can Improve Food Safety and Quality" is followed by "Agricultural Biotechnology Presents Health Risks," both written by university professors. The National Cattlemen's Beef Association contributes "America's Food Supply Is Safe," while the editor of E: The Environmental Magazine weighs in with "Factory Farming Threatens Food Safety." Other aspects of the topic include organic farming, pesticides, irradiation, government/private-sector responsibility, and food-disparagement laws. The writing tends toward the technical style of the journals represented, making this most appealing as a research source. Elizabeth L. Marshall's High-Tech Harvest (Watts, 1999) gives an easier-to-read, pro-technology spin to the subject.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
