Opposing Viewpoints: Topic Shopping At Its Best

Opposing Viewpoints: “This well-named series presents many sides to thought-provoking issues, challenging readers to think about their own opinions and views. Each volume begins with an essay, “Why consider opposing viewpoints?” that gives the series’ rationale: critical thinking; respect for others’ views; and objective evaluation of the authors’ ideas, credentials, and biases. An introduction to the topic is followed by an overview and questions for the reader to consider before reading. Each chapter concludes with a periodical bibliography.” (review from Tracy A. Fitzwater, Book Report (Jan/Feb97) 15:4) This series is highly recommended for students writing argumentative papers or for students seeking to understand both sides of a controversial debate.
