This debate-style reader is designed to introduce students to controversies in mass media. The readings, which represent the arguments of leading scholars and media commentators, reflect a variety of viewpoints and have been selected for their liveliness and substance and because of their value in a debate framework. Taking Sides actively develops critical thinking skills by requiring students to analyze opposing viewpoints and reach considered judgments.
