ea. vol: charts. reprods. bibliog. index. (Opposing Viewpoints Series). CIP. Greenhaven. 1987. PLB $13.95; pap. $6.95. Grade 9 Up The editors have included a truly comprehensive spectrum of opin ion and provided fair , objective intro ductions to each issue, but these can't replace single-author overall treat ments. The books can be most effective ly used for developing critical reasoning skills; the editors provide questions at the end of each section for this purpose. American Government asks: ``What is the basis of American democracy?'' ``What is the role of American govern ment?'' ``Who controls America?'' ``Should the Constitution be revised?'' and ``How can American democracy be improved?'' Each question gets six or seven answers, all from well-known spo kespeople with various viewpoints, all from published sources. Periodical bibli ographies appear at the end of each chap ter, and there is an annotated book bibli ography at the end. Latin America follows the same format. The questions include U. S. intervention, human rights, revolutionary threats to the U. S., the best form of government for Latin America, and the Latin American debt. The only other series of books in this format, those by Gary E. McCuen (GEM McCuen Pub.), do not address these questions in such broad terms; the closest is McCuen's The Nicaraguan Revolution (GEM McCuen Pub., 1985) which focuses on Nicaragua rather than the U.S.'s concerns with it. Libraries should have both series. Jonathan Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Regional Library, Lynnwood, Wash.
