Gr 8 Up-A timely update of a 1994 title. Dudley begins with a brief overview of U.S. immigration policy, followed by more than 20 essays that represent both liberal and conservative points of view, all written between 1995 and 2001. Students will find the articles helpful in examining these controversial and often emotional issues. The essays focus on the impact of illegal immigration and America's response to it and the treatment of illegal immigrants. Additional questions are posed in the "For Further Discussion" section. Along with the text, this section and the five bibliographies offer readers a solid introduction to the subject. A detailed index concludes the volume. Statistical data and charts are included. A few black-and-white political cartoons illustrate, but do little to enhance, the book.-David M. Alperstein, Queens Borough Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
