From the Back Cover:

Taking Sides: Clashing Views in Death and Dying is a debate-style reader designed to introduce students to controversies in death and dying. The readings, which represent the arguments of thanatologists, researchers, educators and writers, have been selected for their liveliness and substance and because of their value in a debate format.
 
Taking Sides: Enhanced Pedagogy!For each issue, the editor provides a concise introduction and LearningOutcomes that set the stage for the debate. A new section, Exploring the Issue,presents Critical Thinking and Reflection questions to provoke further examination of the issue. This section also features Is There Common Ground?--designed to explore the different perspectives of the issue--plus Additional Resources--for Readings or World Wide Web sites that further the debate.
 
By requiring students to analyze contradictory positions and reach considered judgments, Taking Sides actively develops students' critical thinking skills.It is this development of critical thinking skills that is the ultimate purpose of each of the volumes in the widely acclaimed Taking Sides Program.
