School Library Journal Review

Gr 8 Up-Environmental debates are popular topics for classroom work and this title should help students prepare for them. De Koster presents opposing sides of three environmental questions: the importance of extinction, efforts to save endangered species, and human/property rights. The essays are well structured and professional, if somewhat cold for such passionate issues. A set of study questions is included, which is more for teachers than for students. Overall, the work is neutral, with slightly more space devoted to pro-environmental views. The lists of source materials, further reading, and contact organizations are well balanced. Relevant documents, including portions of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, are reproduced in an appendix for easy reference.-Mary B.
