Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—In a pro vs. con approach that is standard fare for such works, Multilingual takes on the value of linguistic diversity. Green Cities addresses disputes over suburban vs. urban sustainability, the rebuilding of New Orleans, and the value of local agriculture. Each work begins with an introductory overview followed by brief arguments drawn from a diversity of newspapers, journals, government documents, and published monographs. Titles of positions put forward are "English-Only Legislation Causes Problems for Libraries" and "Green City Transportation Has Drawbacks" and "Sensible Urban Growth is Achievable." Each volume concludes with the contact information for related organizations such as the Linguistic Society of America and the Alliance to Save Energy. While the diversity of arguments in Green Cities will assist teachers with research projects, those in Multilingual derive strictly from opposing ideological camps.—Brian Odom, Pelham Public Library, AL
