Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Laura Panter
The "Current Controversies" series explores the social, political and economic controversies that are plaguing world today. Each chapter begins with a preface that offers background information on the topic at hand. The chapters are organized around key questions that are answered by various authors with differing opinions. The opinions of the authors of each article are those that could be found in our every day society. The U.S. Economy begins with a discussion of the housing market collapse and the domino affect it is having on the United States' economy including the government bailout of banks as well as large companies such as General Motors. The state of the economy is causing an increased rise in unemployment as major businesses fail and a new era of homelessness is immerging. A debate about whether recession policies are beneficial or detrimental to the economy is discussed at length along with Obama's call for health care reform. This series is mainly designed for controlled research through information gleaned from periodicals, newspapers, books, government documents and organizations; however, the drawback is that most information contained in these books is already over a year old. More accurate information can be found through databases and online research. This would be a good purchase for libraries if students needed older statistics to back up their position while writing a research paper. Reviewer: Laura Panter
