Review:

"As in many other Greenhaven series, such as Opposing Viewpoints, these volumes in the new Examining Pop Culture series includes excerpts from a range of periodicals and primary sources. Both titles, with their sophisticated language and bibliographies of mostly scholarly resources, are best suited for older, academically advanced teens. A fine new series to spark well-informed discussions about lifestyle and current issues."
-- Booklist (October 2001) (Booklist 20011015)

"The entries are well-balanced and present a variety of viewpoints."
-- School Library Journal (School Library Journal )

"Fascinating, informative reading as well as a solid research support; a generous, annotated selection of additional resources is appended."
-- Booklist (April 2002) (Booklist 20020401)
