Gr 7 UpEach volume begins with an introduction in which the issue is described, defined, or reviewed, followed by a chronology of events that provides a historical overview. Subsequent sections include biographical sketches, legal documents or laws, organizations and government agencies, and bibliographies of selected print and nonprint resources. Sports Ethics presents some of the major questions concerning children in sports, college athletics, the Olympics, professionals, racism, women, drug abuse, and media relations. Global Refugee discusses the current controversy regarding the handling of the refugee problem by the U.S. government and the international community. Sherry discusses the philosophical basis of animal rights, presents the pros and cons of their use for research, and includes a graphic description of a human abortion, speculating on the pain the fetus suffers and asking how we can expect people to extend ``personhood'' to other species when those rights are not extended to human embryos. Each volume is well organized and written in language that is easy to understand.Dana McDougald, Cedar Shoals High School, Athens, GA
