ALA Booklist
Covering a broader time period than the name suggests, the Inquire & Investigate Social Issues of the Twentieth Century series (4 titles) offers facts, historical perspective, and useful suggestions for young people studying key issues in America today. The writers encourage further study and thoughtful consideration of their books' subjects, which have all seen shifts in political rhetoric and public perception over time. Besides presenting each topic, they challenge readers to engage in critical thinking and consider questions from various people's points of view. The illustrations include many photos as well as cartoons. The books' large format accommodates a good deal of information in the very readable main texts, while side margins carry related pictures, vocabulary features, and brief introductions to noteworthy figures and events. While the history of Black Americans and changes in Black/white relations take center stage, Race Relations also spotlights the treatment of American Indians, Latinos, and Asian Americans. Well organized information and practical help for students researching significant social issues.
