Grade 9 Up-These concise, debated opinions will help students evaluate America's current response to terrorism. Topics covered include: the U.S.'s use of force against states that support terrorism, the invasion of Iraq, the assassination of leaders of rogue states and terrorist groups, and the use of military force to help foster democracy in the Middle East. The only essay without an opposing viewpoint is the last: "The United States Should Not Use Military Force to Take Control of Vital Resources in the Middle East." Each chapter includes a brief statement identifying the author and an abstract of the article, followed by the full text. Although an introduction to terrorism is provided and some of the articles offer historical background, prior knowledge of the subject would be helpful. A list of related organizations with a brief synopsis of their purpose is included. The Patterns of Global Terrorism (U.S. Dept. of State, 2001) and Eric Hershberg and Kevin W. Moore's Critical Views of September 11: Analyses from around the World (New Press, 2002) will provide students with additional information and opinions on these topics.
