With What's the Problem? A Brief Guide to Thinking Critically Paula Rothenberg applies her hallmark insight to some of the most relevant and controversial problems of our day. Utilizing high interest and readable articles, the 8 parts of this brief collection present multiple perspectives on such urgent societal issues as hunger, homelessness, consumerism, crime, abstinence education and more.  With the aid of part introductions and questions sets, students are challenged to first, identify the individual author perspectives and then, more broadly, to think critically about how these issues are framed in the public eye.
