B01From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up—This update of the 2000 edition presents essays on issues affecting the developing nations. Organized much like its predecessor, the book addresses opposing viewpoints on problems of overpopulation, AIDS, and hunger; the effects of globalization; democracy in Third World countries; and U.S. aid. Each essay is prefaced by several questions for consideration, and each chapter has a periodical bibliography. This edition features discussions of the Bush administration's foreign-aid policies, including essays on the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and there is more emphasis on Southeast Asia in addition to African and Latin American countries than in the previous edition. The articles are detailed and informative, but much of the writing is very academic and would not be accessible to most teen readers. However, this volume would be an excellent resource for more advanced students researching the subject or looking for debate topics.—Kathleen E. Gruver, Burlington County Library, Westampton, NJ
