Booklist Review

Gr. 7^-12. This new Opposing Viewpoints Digests series is a shorter, more accessible, "lite" version of the excellent Opposing Viewpoints series. Instead of including original speeches, essays, and articles in full, Nardo quotes excerpts from those primary sources in his summaries of various sides of controversial issues. Each book begins with a historical introduction. Then he talks about the main topics, first as they were argued by various sides at the time, and then as modern historians see the outcome. The full Opposing Viewpoints books are richly detailed and immediate, but they are intimidating for some students; and these simpler overviews, with clear type, short chapters, occasional black-and-white photos, and brief quotes, will serve as an introduction to the ideas and also as a guide for students' own research. There are full source notes as well as annotated bibliographies, study questions, statistical data, and an appendix of primary sources. --Hazel Rochman
