Issues in Society series

Our library subscribes to a series called "Issues in Society" and I draw your attention to some recent editions.The "Asylum seekers and immigration debate" is centre stage on our national agenda and this book is an excellent resource (published 2013) to inform and clarify one's perspective on this issue – political briefing papers, fact sheets from Government Departments, Amnesty International, the Human Rights Commission, Churches……Worksheets at the end would assist individuals or classes to synthesise the information.

Among the other topics that have recently arrived in our library are Same-sex marriage, Media Ethics and Homeless People.

Highly recommended for personal reflection, senior classroom use or debaters/public speakers.
