Students must often make informed decisions about serious issues that will affect the course of their lives. Smoking, drunk driving, and violence are just a few of these challenging issues. Focusing on topics of special concern to students, the Issues That Concern You series helps make these complex issues less intimidating and more accessible. Each volume presents eight to twelve readings from a variety of perspectives that allow students to better understand and navigate the highlighted topic. Color photos, charts, graphs, tables and editorial cartoons reinforce information as well as present important statistical data. Each volume also includes factual analysis taken from a variety of government and research facilities, to tell students more of what they want to know about the issue. Relevant websites, a bibliography and thorough subject index round out each volume.
