Today's Debates

What are the primary challenges facing U.S. prisons today? Does the rest of
the world have a responsibility to step in when a genocide or other atrocity is
taking place? In what cases is military intervention unethical and when is it
necessary? When it comes to planning our future, should we be able to marry
whomever we want regardless of sex, manipulate our genes, or use enhanced
reproductive technologies? The most controversial social and ethical topics of
our era are investigated and explained in this set. It discusses everything from
same-sex marriage to reproductive technology, from genocide to military
interventions, from torture to prisons. Each book carefully presents every side
of the debate, empowering young readers to draw their own conclusions on some of
