Huge issues confront America today: among them health care, poverty, and the place of religion in government. with the nation on the brink of changes, it's more important than ever before for students to understand what led to these problems and why people in power disagree about what caused them and, therefore, how to solve them. More important, the books in Controversy! give students a way to use critical thinking to create informed opinions on where they stand on these issues, and may help them become part of the solution.
