Special Reports Set 2 - School Library Connection

Each volume begins with a story from the news as an introduction to the topic, expands on that story, and then moves into the history behind the topic. The “Additional Resources” at the end of each volume is a valuable inclusion for libraries. Students could use these as a starting point for research. . .

Special Reports Set 2 - Booklist

For students who need reliable and concise research sources on controversial topics, these volumes in the Special Reports series offer great options. Accompanied by color photos, graphs, and charts, each book starts its discussion with a recent news story that draws attention to the issue and continues with an overview of the controversy at hand. Subsequent chapters give a historical background and address multiple points of view. The titles conclude by considering the future of each topic. Sidebars, numerous media stories, and extensive back matter extend the value of the series.
