Taking Sides: Clashing Views in World History, Volume 2, Expanded Second Edition, is a debate-style reader designed to introduce students to controversies in world history. The readings, which represent the arguments of leading historians and commentators on world history, reflect opposing positions and have been selected for their liveliness and substance and because of their value in a debate framework. For each issue, the editors provide a concise introduction and postscript summary. The introduction sets the stage for the debate as it is argued in the "yes" and "no" readings. The postscript briefly reviews the opposing opinions and suggests additional readings on the controversial issue under discussion. By requiring students to analyze contradictory positions and reach considered judgments, Taking Sides actively develops students' critical thinking skills. It is this development of critical thinking skills that is the ultimate purpose of each of the volumes in the widely acclaimed Taking Sides program.
