Grade 8 Up-- Two volumes that take up topics of current interest and present a variety of strongly differing responses to related con cerns about them. However, the study ques tions and choices of viewpoints indicate an ef fort to promote critical thinking rather than to present a thorough analysis of the topics. Each article is illustrated with a political car toon and/or a chart. Debate teams will find both titles quite useful. Economics is a sub stantial reworking of an earlier compilation of articles in the same series (Greenhaven, 1986). In the new version, only two of the original chapter titles are repeated, and they have all new readings and different exercises. The new questions reflect different directions in current debates; free trade and govern ment's proper role in business are replaced by threats to the banking system and the future of the labor movement. Politics has some overlap with two earlier books in the series , The Political Spectrum (1986) , which covers the distinctions between liberalism and con servatism in more depth, and American Gov ernment (1988, both Greenhaven). But again, the selections and the exercises are new. Nu merous ``straight-text'' treatments are avail able that will give a better overall grasp of each subject, but these books are useful sup plements and support the much-needed effort to develop critical-thinking skills in our stu dents. --Jonathan Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Region al Library System, Edmonds, WA
