About this title

Synopsis:

Concerns about the health effects of tobacco have led to increased public support for restricting and reducing smoking. Smokers protest these limitations while the tobacco industry defends its products. Chapters include: Are the Health Risks of Smoking Exaggerated? Is the Tobacco Industry to Blame for Leading People to Smoke? How Can Smoking Be Reduced? Are Increased Measures Needed to Combat Teen Smoking? Should Government Regulations of Smoking Be Increased?

Review:

"This anthology includes essays that initially appeared in periodicals, newspapers, books, government documents, and public and private organizational publications...A balanced presentation for highly controversial views, the selections differ in style and polish; some are carefully reasoned, and others are emotionally charged. Three major sections explore the dimensions of the problem, its causes, and possible remedies. Pulling no punches, this title covers its subjects well. Useful for research, for reports, and for debates."
-- School Library Journal (November 2001) (School Library Journal 20011101)

"I have almost every series Greenhaven Press has published and love them all..These titles will be a gret resource for current events, history, and speech classes and debate teams. Highly Recommended."
--Library Media Connection (August/September 2004) (Library Media Connection 20040901)

"This wide-ranging entry in the Current Controversies series gives readers information for reports as well as for making personal choices. The writing is more intellectual than impassioned, and supporting evidence usually comes from respected sources that young readers will likely recognize and trust. Rich materials for many curricular disciplines."
-- Booklist (May 2002) (Booklist 20020501)

"If students and classroom teachers are looking for materials to demonstrate how statistics can be manipulated, or solid examples of persuasive writing or bias, this recent addition to the Current Controversies series is a good place to start...A wide variety of contributors is included—from Senator John McCain and the American Lung Association to writers for Libertarian publications and think tanks such as the Cato Institute. Researchers will appreciate the bibliography and the extensive, annotated list of organizations."
-- Booklist (July 2002) (Booklist 20020701)
