Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Within the last century, the United States population has tripled, with a commensurate cost to our natural surroundings. Here, Facts on File tackles our country's response to 12 post-World War II environmental crises by playing devil's advocate with each. Chapters include an introduction and background, then launch into analysis (sections entitled The Debate, The Case For, The Case In Defense Of, Outcome and Impact, What If?) and conclude with Chronology, Discussion Questions, Web Sites, and Primary Sources. Topics include the Makah Whale Hunt, the Donora Smog, and Hurricane Katrina. VERDICT The "Issues and Controversies" series continues to be a no-brainer purchase for school libraries. This is an excellent resource for students.
