The Hot Topics series provides clear, balanced, and thoughtful examination of the hot-button issues of the day. Carefully crafted narrative, fully documented primary and secondary source quotations, informative sidebars, and study questions all provide excellent starting points for research and discussion. Fullcolor photographs, maps, and charts enhance all volumes in the series.
