Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9?These series entries have a lively format that relies heavily on question-and-answer sections, interviews, and case histories, most of which lack source verification. The books introduce and discuss problems facing teens from a social and psychological perspective, and offer advice on coping and resolution. Average-quality, black-and-white photographs illustrate the texts. Unfortunately, Racism is marred by poor organization, and each topic is treated too briefly to convey much information. The overly broad scope includes communication between people of different races, minorities and stereotypes, a history of racism in the U.S., the civil rights movement, prejudice against Native Americans and immigrant groups, anti-Semitism, skinheads and the Klan, the Rodney King beating, black racism, and affirmative action. Better titles include Linda Mizell's fact-filled and easy-to-read Racism (Walker, 1992); Racism in America (Greenhaven, 1991), a compilation of articles presenting opposing viewpoints; and books on specific topics, such as Elaine Landau's The White Power Movement (Millbrook, 1993) and Michael Kronenwetter's United They Hate (Walker, 1992). Eating Disorders provides a good overview of a timely subject. General information is followed by specific chapters on anorexia, bulimia, compulsive overeating, and treatment. Self-diagnosis quizzes and lists of symptoms and physical effects are highlighted. Two books with similar coverage and more straightforward formats are Don Nardo's Eating Disorders (Lucent, 1991) and Ben Sonder's Eating Disorders (Watts, 1993), which delves into theories about psychological and physiological causes.?Joyce Adams Burner, formerly at Spring Hill Middle School, KS
