Synopsis

Global Issues Set by Facts on File

Bringing an international perspective to some of the key challenges facing the world today, the Global Issues series acts as a first-stop resource for these hot-button issues. A foreword written by an expert in the field complements each volume and highlights the global significance of each of these topics in the 21st century. Each volume contains three sections, beginning with an introduction that clearly defines the issue by outlining the global challenges involved and providing a brief history of the subject. Detailed case studies of the United States and several other countries or regions explore how the issue uniquely impacts each society, as well as what strategies each has pursued in response. The second section draws together significant U.S. and international primary source documents--including excerpts from newspaper articles, speeches, relevant treaties and other legal documents, and scientific reports. The third section gathers useful research tools--such as brief biographies of key international players, facts and figures, an annotated bibliography, and a list of relevant international organizations and agencies. Additional features include a chronology, a glossary, and an index. This series is a vital resource for students wanting to learn more about important issues from a global perspective, as well as the history that has led up to their present state.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
