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 issues surrounding gay marriage and whether or not it should be -- or will ever be -- legal. Discussions include how the option of marriage would affect gay relationships, whether the rights granted to gays would threaten the rights of straight people; and if gay marriage would strengthen or weaken society, the institution of marriage, and the nurture of children.
"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."
