From the Inside Flap:

This series is a vital resource for students wanting to learn more about important issues from a global perspective, as well as the history that has led up to their present state. Each volume contains three sections, beginning with an introduction that clearly defines the issue by outlining the global challenges involved and providing a brief history of the subject. The second section draws together significant U.S. and international primary source documents. The third section gathers useful research tools—such as brief biographies of key international players, facts and figures, an annotated bibliography, and a list of relevant international organizations and agencies.

This is an important first-stop resource for high school and college students, school and public libraries, and general readers interested in timely, hot-button issues.

·Detailed case studies of the United States and several other countries or regions explore how a certain issue uniquely impacts society, as well as what strategies were formulated in response.
· Primary source documents include excerpts from newspaper articles, speeches, relevant treaties and other legal documents, and scientific reports.

"...an excellent resource for reports...Highly Recommended."
—Library Media Connection, starred review of Immigration and Migration
