Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7-9- Balanced overviews of complex, divisive issues. Though not exhaustive, these titles include the topic's history and most salient points in an accessible and reader-friendly format. Affirmative Action discusses civil rights history and the controversies at the heart of today's affirmative action debate. Civil Liberties covers recent and historical limits in the name of national security; the First, Fourth, and Eighth Amendments; habeas corpus and due process; and the right to a speedy trial. Illegal Immigration 's opening chapter begins with 2006 Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids and closes with questions about how illegal immigration impacts the U.S. economy and culture. Subsequent chapters address the history of U.S. immigration, crime and drugs, costs, labor concerns, border security, and proposals for reform. Color images enhance the texts, and charts and maps further clarify the content. Sidebars expand on related topics through quotes, primary-source snippets, and other salient information, while marbled page borders lend a scholarly air to the attractive layouts. A four-page time line with color photos, a thorough glossary, and an "Essential Facts" feature with critical dates and quotes are also noteworthy. These impressive works are welcome alternatives to collection staples such as books in the "Current Controversies" and "Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints" (both Gale) series (both geared to a slightly older audience).-Amy Pickett, Ridley High School, Folsom, PA
