Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Five major questions are addressed in this series entry: ``Is there a population problem?'' ``Is the world's population growing too fast?'' ``Is overpopulation responsible for hunger, poverty, and environmental problems?'' ``What are the effects of immigration in the United States?'' and ``What population policies should be pursued?'' The first question is dealt with from a historical perspective with essays and articles debating state involvement in population growth or control and the ability of science to solve the problem. Different sides of each question are examined with articles and essays by scholars, environmentalists, economists, journalists, scientists, sociologists, and spokespeople interested in the issues. Lists of periodical articles for further reading follow the diverse views presented. Political cartoons serve to drive home various points. Clear writing, further aided in many cases by charts and graphs, makes this an especially accessible volume for students doing research or preparing for debates. Appendixes include discussion ideas for each question presented, a list of organizations to contact, a bibliography, and a comprehensive index.-Dana McDougald, Cedar Shoals High School, Athens, GA
