Why Consider Opposing Viewpoints?

"The only way in which a human being can make some approach to know the whole of a subject is by hearing what can be said about it by persons of every variety of opinion and studying all modes in which it can be looked at by every character of mind.  No wise man ever acquired his wisdom in any mode but this."                    John Stuart Mill

"First introduced more than 40 years ago, Opposing Viewpoints still sets the standard for current-issues studies. With countless volumes covering nearly every controversial contemporary topic, Opposing Viewpoints is the leading source of current-issue materials for libraries and classrooms. Each title delivers pro/con expert opinions, selected from highly respected and often hard-to-find sources and publications. Readers are exposed to many sides of a debate, which promotes issue awareness as well as critical thinking. In short, Opposing Viewpoints is the best research and learning tool for exploring the issues that continually shape and define our turbulent and changing world."
