Description: Katherine Ackley assumes that students respond most deeply to readings on topics relevant to their own lives. The selections included in the fifth edition of PERSPECTIVES ON CONTEMPORARY ISSUES will prompt good discussions, and the sections on reading and writing critically will lead to writing that you truly care about.
