Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Daniel Levinson
Greenhaven Press has long produced a variety of series dealing with current events (Opposing Viewpoints, Current Controversies, etc.) that marshal a variety of pro/con essays and argument excerpts. (Opposing Viewpoints is also available for purchase in a Gale computer database version.) The At Issue series titles are shorter than those two series, and don't organize articles by subtopic. They have individual titles grouped under broader topics. Some individual book topics are policy oriented (oil drilling in the Arctic, foreign oil dependence, the future of the US economy), but many are more likely to hit teens where they live: reality TV, censorship of music lyrics, and advertising and teen behavior. Mass Media and Teen Issues are the more unusual and interesting volumes. The TV volume has reprinted articles from a variety of sources, including The Columbia Journalism Review, The Nation and US Catholic. They run 5 to 15 pages each, and offer basically pro/con pairs: reality shows have some positive attributes vs. negative influence; positive religious message vs. an amoral one, and so forth. It ends with two more open-ended topics: that such shows promote a democratic view of society and can motivate generosity across the country. Many titles run under 100 pages of text, and pages are airy, not crammed with hard-to-read small font text. All sport attractive black covers with bright color illustrations. As with all the Greenhaven current events books, some articles and topics are more likely than others to seem stale quickly. And given the relatively high prices, these probably are for larger school and public libraries only. Reviewer: Daniel Levinson
