Gr 6-9-Colorful layouts with numerous maps and graphs dominate this series, which provides an international perspective on important issues. Brief chapters frame problems, discuss their causes, and suggest possible solutions, using maps to illustrate the locations and extent of threats. Large color photos, sidebars, and "Case Study" text boxes augment the main texts, but documentation is sparse. The titles are written from an activist standpoint, but most devote a decent amount of space to opposing viewpoints. The exception is Global, which includes extreme forecasts about rising sea levels and gives skeptical viewpoints about the changing climate only a few paragraphs before concluding that "we must mitigate to reduce global warming." These titles' map-centered focus will help readers improve reading and thinking skills, and, with the exception of Global, provide sufficient coverage and objective analysis. However, most of these topics have received such wide exposure that these books will be additional purchases for many libraries.α(c) Copyright 2011.
