Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A volume in the "At Issues" series, this interesting collection of essays by nine different authors includes a wide range of opinions, both pro and con, on the controversial subject of reparations for slavery. A political issue first raised during the civil rights era, it has found new voices since the reparation payments to the Japanese families illegally interred in camps during World War II. The nine essays, written by prominent journalists, authors and activists, provide a wealth of insights into this horrific part of American's past and inspire discussion and understanding among any classroom using the book. Wherever Americans, young and old, gather to learn from one another, this collection of ideas and historical facts should inspire dialogue on events that continue to affect our social and political lives. For young people, it's the way history should be written. A bibliography, index and sources for further study are included. 2004, Greenhaven Press, Ages 14 up.
—Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
