From School Library Journal Grade 7 Up?Each volume begins with an introduction in which the issue is described, defined, or reviewed, followed by a chronology of events that provides a historical overview. Subsequent sections include biographical sketches, legal documents or laws, organizations and government agencies, and bibliographies of selected print and nonprint resources. Sports Ethics presents some of the major questions concerning children in sports, college athletics, the Olympics, professionals, racism, women, drug abuse, and media relations. Global Refugee discusses the current controversy regarding the handling of the refugee problem by the U.S. government and the international community. Sherry discusses the philosophical basis of animal rights, presents the pros and cons of their use for research, and includes a graphic description of a human abortion, speculating on the pain the fetus suffers and asking how we can expect people to extend "personhood" to other species when those rights are not extended to human embryos. Each volume is well organized and written in language that is easy to understand.?Dana McDougald, Cedar Shoals High School, Athens, GACopyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal This book is part of the publisher's highly regarded series. The first quarter presents an overview and chronology of the animal rights movement, followed by biographical sketches of key figures. Included is a section on federal laws dealing with the protection of animals, and a summary of animal rights litigation, although relatively little has occurred to date. The remainder of the volume is composed of lists of various types of resources for further information. A comprehensive list of print and nonprint materials includes electronic bulletin boards, online databases, and videos. Organizations are listed with address, phone number, and publications. The list of organizations seems to favor animal rights activists, although it does include a sport fishing group and the National Trappers Association. In general Sherry (Opportunities in Medical Imaging Careers, VCH Publishers, 1993) provides a balanced view of the animal rights movement, without noticeably taking a stand on either side of the issues. Recommended, especially for academic libraries.Deborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll. Lib., Rochester, N.Y.Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.
