Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-These well-organized titles address volatile issues that have been the center of local, state, and national politics for a long time as well as concerns about the Internet that are creating new challenges to First Amendment advocates, and to those who oppose free access to materials. Pornography addresses both sides of the following questions: "Is Pornography Harmful?" "Should Pornography Be Censored?" "How Should Internet Pornography Be Regulated?" "What Should Be the Feminist Stance on Pornography?" Censorship asks: "Should the Right to Free Speech Be Restricted?" "Should Pornography Be Censored?" "Should Schools and Libraries Practice Censorship?" "Should the Arts and Entertainment Industries Be Censored?" Both books include the text of the First Amendment and questions at the beginning of each chapter for students to ponder as they read the different viewpoints. These volumes will be useful for developing the critical-thinking skills necessary to argue points related to these complex issues. Essential additions to school libraries, especially for debate teams.-Pat Scales, South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, Greenville Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
