Controversial Cases in American Politics. Alan Shank is professor emeritus of political science at the State University of New York at Geneseo.

Review:

You Decide!: is a wonderful teaching tool―both engaging and erudite, with well balanced essays that permit and provoke sharp debate. Topics range from terror―and how to deal with it―to child labor and global warming. Thus, 'Global issues' are defined broadly. as they should be. Each chapter includes deep-probing discussion questions and interesting class exercises. Suggestions for further reading and websites range far and wide. (Walter Clemens)

You Decide!: Controversial Global Issues will be a welcome addition to introductory international relations courses. The authors present sophisticated combinations of theory and fact. The questions examined are questions that students are already asking and this book gives the framework for the students to provide informed answers. (Andrea M. Lopez, Susquehanna University)

A powerful pedagogical resource. Highly recommended for instruction. (Charles W. Kegley Jr., University of South Carolina)
