KLIATT
These new additions to a large and valuable "Current Controversies" series examine topical issues from varying perspectives, with articles from primary sources arguing different sides. For example, the volume on pollution has sections debating whether air and water pollution are serious problems; whether corporations are polluting the environment; whether pollution regulations are effective; and if recycling is an effective way to reduce pollution. Authors include such organizations as the American Petroleum Institute and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy as well as scientists, researchers, professors, politicians, and journalists, offering a wide range of opinions grouped under headings such as "No: Recycling is Ineffective." There is a brief preface to each chapter, laying out the issues, and credentials are given for each author. Each volume also includes an annotated list of organizations to contact. Perfect for social studies classes and debate teams, titles in this series will be welcomed in high school libraries as well as public libraries.
