Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This series on current issues provides full-length articles that offer a range of opinions on various controversial topics. Teen Suicide begins with an introduction that discusses suicide memorials and contagion. The 13 articles that follow examine different aspects of teen suicide, from "Homosexuality is a Risk Factor for Teen Suicide," by a Yale University student, to "Substance Abuse is a Factor in Many Suicides," by a psychology professor, to "Heavy Metal Music Does Not Contribute to Teen Suicide," by a representative of the organization Portrait of an American Family Association. An annotated list of organizations to contact appears at the end of the book. The variety of opinions presented, along with the references provided, will help students get a sense of the various aspects of the issue and encourage critical thinking. Helpful for social studies classes and high school and public libraries, for students preparing term papers. Titles coming up in 2001 include Anorexia, Biological and Chemical Weapons, Drugs and Sports, The Ethics of Abortion, The Ethics of Human Cloning, Heroin, How Should Prisons Treat Inmates?, Nuclear and Toxic Waste, and Nuclear Security.
