More About This Textbook

Overview

Taking Sides: Clashing Views on Controversial Issues in Health and Society, 6th edition, is a debate-style reader designed to introduce students to controversies in health science and personal health. The readings, which represent the arguments of leading health care professionals, policymakers, and social commentators, reflect a variety of viewpoints and have been selected for their liveliness and substance and because of their value in a debate framework. For each issue, the editor provides a concise introduction and postscript summary. The introduction sets the stage for the debate as it is argued in the "yes" and "no" readings, and the postscript briefly reviews the opposing views and suggests additional readings on the controversial issue under discussion. By requiring students to analyze opposing viewpoints and reach considered judgments, Taking Sides actively develops students' critical thinking skills. It is this development of critical thinking skills that is the ultimate purpose of each of the volumes in the widely acclaimed Taking Sides program.
