Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–This collection of essays examines how race is experienced in this country by considering the following questions: Should America's Racial Differences Be Emphasized?, What Impact Does Immigration Have on Interracial America?, What Policies Promote Opportunities for All Races?, and How Should Society View Interracial Families? The viewpoints expressed are excerpted from a variety of publications, and a periodical bibliography of related articles accompanies each chapter. Pieces from bell hooks, Clarence Thomas, the editors of Rethinking Schools, the League of United Latin American Citizens, and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund are among the selections included. For social-studies classes wishing to delve into the matter of race, this volume should prove helpful when used in conjunction with other source materials. It will be a boon to debaters.–Carol Jones Collins, Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ

Format: Hardcover
I came across this book at the library and I had to pick it up. I remember from my days in college reading several books from the Opposing Viewpoint series from Greenhaven Press. Inside were various authors and contributors taking different sides on a controversial issue. Generally each book was devoted to one issue, for example, gun rights, or women's rights, or abortion, but inside there was a lot of room to cover different aspects of, for example, the women's movement. You'd hear from Gloria Steinem, and then from Phyllis Schlafly. They'd each get five or six pages to expound on, say, women in the military. You'd hear from someone who was an out-and-out member of this or that communist council and then someone from 'the American Family Institute'. Generally, each book tried to be controversial, or cover a controversial topic. Side by side you could read what activists had to say. Sometimes politicians would be presented. For the most part you'd have to assume these writings and speeches were 'collected' in that they weren't written just for this book.

This is not, and these are not, the same books (I'm sure the originals could still be found - and I would say would be worth reading). This new series is filled with literature from around 2006 or so.

It takes a lot more in 2010 (and perhaps they should do an Opposing Viewpoints series on it). . . it takes a lot more for something to be 'controversial' now than it did in 1984. But, wow, Greenhaven press manage to do it. I would say of the six or seven Opposing Viewpoint books I've read - a series that sets out to be controversial - this is the most 'controversial' one.
