Review:

"This thoughtful, lucidly written work presents an evenhanded discussion of five major issues. The best organized introduction for the student needing report or debate material. The abundantly footnoted text quotes many primary sources and draws upon scientific examples to illuminate the questions. Informative...black-and-white photographs accompany the text. The appended list of organizations and the generally current list of books for further reading are both annotated."
-- School Library Journal (December 2000) (School Library Journal 20001201)

"Many of the articles were written by professional journalists, but some are more personal. Titles should find a place and school libraries."
-- School Library Journal (June 2002) (School Library Journal 20020601)

"There are plenty of dynamic opinions from professionals with firsthand knowledge of the topic."
-- Booklist (May 2002) (Booklist 20020501)
