Information Plus: The Information Series On Current Topics

Book Covers


This series deals with contemporary issues or social problems that are the focus of many communications and sociology courses. Each chapter deals with a specific aspect of a more broad issue, such as Ethical Issues and Public Opinion in the book on Genetics and Genetic Engineering or Crime and Violence in the Schools in the book on Growing up: Issues Affecting America’s Youth. Graphs, charts, histories of the issues, government and legal precedents are concise and readable. Resources at the end of some books in the series lead the reader to additional source material.
