Editorial Reviews

These slim volumes from the At-Issue series offer a range of opinions on current isses. DNA Databases, for example, provides 11 articles by lawyers, scientists, professors, and others weighing in on such topics as whether using DNA databases for targeted profiling is effective and whether they allow government intrusion on private information. Global Warming considers whether polar ice masses are melting, its effect on hurricane strength, the role of carbon dioxide emission, and other current debates. Date Rape examines the role of alcohol and drugs, the definition of rape, date rape in the queer community, false accusations, and the need for legislation, among other subjects. The other volumes similarly offer varied opinions on these hot topics. Students researching these subjects will appreciate the brevity of the article excerpts along with the handy short summaries that precede them, as well as the introductions that carefully outline the issues. Organizations to contact are listed at the end of each book. Age Range: Ages 12 to adult. REVIEWER: Paula Rohrlick (Vol. 42, No. 1)
