A handful of ©2015 new research books have been added to the library — something to keep in mind when you’re researching for your next paper or project.
The At Issue Series provides a wide range of opinions on individual social issues with each volume offering a variety of perspectives – eyewitness accounts, governmental views, scientific analysis, newspaper and magazine accounts, and many more – to illuminate the issue. Extensive bibliographies and annotated lists of relevant organizations point to sources for further research.
The ailments and conditions that afflict people today can be confusing, disturbing, and painful – both emotionally and physically. The Diseases & Disorders Series provides clear, careful explanations that offer readers and researchers insight into what these conditions are, what causes them, how people live with them, and the latest information about treatment and prevention. All volumes in the series include primary and secondary quotations, annotated bibliographies, detailed indexes, and lists of organizations to contact for additional information.
