Raise the Issues helps advanced students develop critical thinking skills as they gain insight into American Attitudes and values. It combines original broadcasts from NPR® with authentic articls from publications such as The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, and the International Herald-Tribune to present dffering viewpoints on contemporary topics.

    Not bad, but be careful since it has no CD.

    I was careless when I place the order and didn't notice that it doesn't has a CD....

    The shipping is fast.
