Contentious issues such as abortion and the death penalty touch on people's deeply held personal and political beliefs. But these issues have also been tested many times in the courts. Often these court decisions reflect societal climate and offer a fascinating way to trace changing trends. < P>This anthology series captures the passion and depth of these debates and provides an ideal resource for research on social issues. Each volume focuses on a specific issue and examines how the courts have helped to shape that issue through their rulings. Primary sources include the text of court rulings and dissenting opinions as well as contemporaneous analysis and opinion on the rulings. Secondary sources provide retrospective evaluation of the courts' decisions and their legacies. This engaging series offers a wealth of information on both the historical and contemporary aspects of the most pressing issues confronting society. Included are: < ul> < li> Annotated tables of contents provide easy reference< li> Comprehensive indexes facilitate research< li> In-depth introductions and chapter prefaces offer essential context< li> Bibliographies provide avenues for additional research< li> Lists of organizations to contact offer additional sources of information< /uI>

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up—This title examines the legal implications of the most significant civil-rights cases brought before the Supreme Court in the 20th century. Its underlining premise is that each case holds within it certain contradictions and unanswered questions. With this concept as a guide, the editor gathered a diversity of opinions relevant to those cases that have been pivotal in addressing racial discrimination. Legal scholars and practitioners offer their views on the real impact of Brown v. Board of Education, Plessy v. Ferguson, Wisconsin v. Mitchell, and Grutter v. Bollinger. One article argues, for example, that Brown did not really overturn Plessy. Others discuss hate-crime laws and free speech and the legality of racial preferences in college admissions. This well-thought-out, well-organized, and readable book adds yet another dimension to the issue of race in this country. It should prove to be useful to students looking for debate topics or those doing research on race and the law.—Carol Jones Collins, Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ
