Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Giving students enough information to write a report or formulate an opinion about a variety of social and political situations encountered in contemporary society, volumes in this "Issues in Focus" series focus on topics such as the death penalty, global warming, and the human genome project in addition to these titles. The books all have colorful, eye-catching covers and follow roughly the same format. They are aimed at middle school and junior high school students but could also be used by high school students. The information presented is factual, concise, and accurate. The typical teen might not find any of these books exciting to read, however, with their boring layout and repetitious text. There are no color illustrations and little is done to break up the text. Sometimes, important information is lacking. One might expect a book on human rights to have a map of current problems, but there was none. There also was no map or chart of those nations experimenting with genetically modified food. The books also had physical problems: three of the five had bindings that audibly cracked when opened gently for the first time. Although these books are reasonably priced subject overviews, librarians would do better to choose material from the similar Opposing Viewpoints Digests series from Greenhaven, which is written for the same age range and includes study questions, more lively writing, and illustrations, such as political cartoons, and contemporary celebrities to brighten the text. Glossary. Index. Illus. Source Notes. Further Reading.

Gr 7-10-An introduction to relevant names, organizations, movements, and world events associated with human-rights issues. Nine chapters are packed with information, enough for jump-starting a report on human-rights violations from ancient times to the present day. The book covers the growth of nongovernmental organizations, the "globalization" of the movement, and the Helsinki Accords. There are also brief discussions of human-rights abuses by the Khmer Rouge of Cambodia; in Argentina in the '70s and '80s; apartheid in South Africa; atrocities in Bosnia-Herzegovina; and deadly clashes in Rwanda, East Timor, Sudan, and other places. Core values of groups and individuals fighting for human rights are enumerated. Chapters on civil disobedience include information on the work and philosophy of Henry David Thoreau, Mohandas K. Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar Chavez, and Andrei Sakharov. The mention of Osama bin Laden attests to the currency of the information. Boxed quotes illustrate cogent points, and black-and-white archival photographs, woodcuts, engravings, and political cartoons with informative captions add interest. There is not much information available for this audience on human rights; this book's accessibility and authority make it an excellent purchase for school and public libraries.-Marilyn Fairbanks, Azure IRC, Brockton High School, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
