Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-These series entries give YAs the opportunity to consider, evaluate, and ultimately develop a better understanding of important contemporary issues. The first book begins by examining both sides of the question, "Is violence a serious problem in America?" It discusses some of the possible causes and devotes particular attention to the problems of domestic and youth violence. The final section includes debates on policies to reduce violence, the use of anti-crime measures, increased gun control, and increased incarceration. 21st Century deals with an assortment of forecasts for the near future. The first section, "How will demographic trends affect humanity?" includes discussion of overpopulation, the gap between haves and have-nots, and teens vs. senior citizen as the dominant age-group. The impacts of new technologies and trends that might affect the global ecology are addressed. One section speculates on the future of international relations, and the final section contains a potpourri of "wild cards." Each book includes graphs, charts, statistics, cartoons, and bibliographies to support the varying viewpoints. Written in a popular style that makes the articles accessible to students, these books are valuable resources.-Dana McDougald, Cedar Shoals High School, Athens, GA

All new articles, most originally published in 1994, with a smattering from 1992 and 1993 as well as several that first appeared in early 1995, make up this Opposing Viewpoints book, a replacement for the 1990 "Violence in America", edited by Janelle Rohr. The five major questions addressed here concern whether violence is a serious problem in America, the causes of violence, domestic violence, youth violence, and policies to reduce violence. As usual in the series, there is a great diversity of opinion that will provoke thought and prompt discussion. Periodical bibliographies follow each set of opinions, and appended material includes a list of organizations to contact and a bibliography of books.
