Summary

Summary

The Compact Reference Series provides the same comprehensive coverage of key social issues in 27 44-88 page softcover volumes. Each volume in the Compact Series is written at a seventh-grade level enabling young researchers to easily understand data relevant to each issue. Volumes in the Compact Series can also be used for researchers at the high-school level who may not have the reading ability to understand materials written at a higher level. Nothing in the presentation of data or the volumes themselves indicate that these books are prepared for a younger audience allowing older students to use the volumes without feeling self-conscious. The Compact Series can also be used by people whose second language is English, providing a unique opportunity to learn about social issues without having to labor through resources written with fluent adult English-speaking users in mind. Volumes in the Compact Series are completely updated and revised every two to three years.
