Series Foreword

Many controversial topics are difficult for student researchers to understand fully without examining key people and their positions in the subjects being debated. This series is designed to meet the research needs of high school and college students by providing them with profiles of those who have been at the center of debates on such controversial topics as gun control, capital punishment, and gay and lesbian rights. The personal stories—the reasons behind their arguments—add a human element to the debates not found in other resources focusing on these topics.

Each volume in the series provides profiles of people, chosen for their effective battles in support of or in opposition to one side of a specific controversial issue. The volumes provide an equal number of profiles of those on both sides of the debates. Students are encouraged to read stories from the two opposite sides to develop their critical thinking skills and to draw their own conclusions concerning the specific issues. They will learn about those people who are not afraid to stand up for their cause, no matter what it may be, and no matter what the consequences may be.

To further help the student researcher, the author of each volume has provided an introduction that outlines the history of the issue and the debates surrounding it, as well as explaining the major arguments and concerns of those involved in the debates. The pro and con arguments are clearly defined as are major developments in the movement. Students can use these introductions as a foundation for analyzing the stories of the people who follow.
