School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-Pertinent political and social issues are well defined and explored in this comprehensive set. The narratives are balanced and present much of the information plainly. When it comes to contentious issues, the authors provide a variety of viewpoints with equal respect to each side. "From the Headlines" sidebars point to specific examples from recent events that best exemplify a related idea or argument. Considering the timeliness of many of the subjects featured, these volumes are sure to be well used by teens for research and personal edification. © Copyright 2017.
