Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Here are three new titles in this valuable anthology series that presents reprints of primary sources representing various sides of social and political issues. Drug Legalization, for example, considers the question of whether prohibition is an effective strategy, offering opinions by people like Barry R. McCaffrey, director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy ("An International Drug Prohibition Effort is Needed"), contrasted with those of, for instance, Jesse Jackson ("Drug Prohibition is Unfair to Minorities"). Other questions considered are whether U.S drug policies should be liberalized and whether marijuana laws should be relaxed, with professors, newspaper columnists, and congressmen, among others, weighing in with opinions excerpted from newspaper articles, journals, and government testimony. An introduction sets out the issues, and chapter prefaces summarize some of the arguments. There is a line or two of biographical information about each author. The other titles follow a similar format. Suicide examines whether suicide is an individual right, what its causes are and how it can be prevented, and whether physicians should help the terminally ill commit suicide. Ethics examines what motivates people to behave ethically, whether American businesses are becoming more ethical, the ethics of modern biomedical practices, and how to teach ethical behavior. Each title includes an annotated list of organizations to contact. Titles coming up in 2001 include The Abortion Controversy, Censorship, Family Violence, Hate Crimes, Teen Pregnancy and Parenting, and Violence in the Media. Useful as a way of sparking discussions in social studies courses as well as for research in allhigh school and public libraries. (Current Controversies).
