Should Same-Sex Marriage Be Considered a Constitutional Right? Should Religion Prohibit Same-Sex Marriage? How Do Same-Sex Households Affect Children?

From Booklist:

The title of each book of the In Controversy series asks a question, reflecting its attempt to provide a vigorous discussion of the pros and cons. It’s a little fairer in its coverage than some discussion books, which try to match every point tit-for-tat—these allow room for different viewpoints without pretending each view is equally substantial. The chapters investigate a genuine question about each topic, such as “How Do Same-Sex Households Affect Children?”Should Same-Sex Marriage Be Legal? is up-to-date as of June 2012 and gets into the thorny topics of religion, child rearing, and constitutional rights. Each chapter is followed by a box of quick facts, and each volume includes good source notes. These make for ideal starting points for student researchers, and the interesting material with lots of quotes makes these useful for leisure reading, too. Grades 7-10. --Susan Dove Lempke
