There are two sides to every story. And when discussing serious social issues, the conversation can quickly escalate to loud and judgmental levels. It can be difficult to figure out which argument is right or which is right for us. That's why the Opposing Viewpoints database is so amazing! It takes hot topics -- abortion, capital punishment, immigration -- and provides expert pro and con viewpoints. Opposing Viewpoints also features topic overviews, more than 300 primary source documents, biographies of social activists and reformers, court-case overviews, periodical articles, and statistical tables, charts and graphs. Won't that be helpful when you're researching your next paper or preparing your next debate? Access Opposing Viewpoints through Hoover Public Library's databases.
