Inspired by the acclaimed Opposing Viewpoints series, Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints promotes issue awareness and critical thinking by placing a wide range of expert opinions in a unique pro/con format. Even more accessible than its parent series, it offers a wealth of information at a lower reading level, in a bright, engaging package that helps more students grasp the controversies of our increasingly complex world.
This title explores the current progress of the war in Afghanistan, addressing challenges like the presence of the Taliban, the likelihood of democracy succeeding in the region, the status of women, and corruption. Also discussed are future choices for the United States' involvement, including stay or leave, draw down or send more troops, and focus on the military or the humanitarian mission.
"The titles in this series will be useful for students studying debate topics or researching for papers. It also teaches the valuable lesson that there are two (or more) sides to every issue."
