Each volume in theDebating Pointsseries is designed to introduce the reader to some of the most highly contested issues in a field of study. Within each chapter, each issue is presented by two reputable sources in a concise fashion. The material is edited to help the instructor encourage students to engage in critical thinking and carefully considered debate. As students grapple with the complexity of each debate, they gain a new understanding and clarification of the topic. TheDebating Pointsseries complements the learning that takes place in textbooks and lectures by asking students to apply the knowledge they have gained from these other sources.Tischler, Henry L. is the author of 'Debating Points Marriage and Family Issues', published 2000 under ISBN 9780137997275 and ISBN 0137997272.
