"Controversy over ethical issues is a familiar feature of our world and our society, and this book explores a number of those controversies by presenting opposing positions in the strongest possible form. Each topic is briefly introduced, and a few questions are posed; then a forceful, persuasive, and interesting arguement is offered for each side, each arguement framed directly by a leading advocate of that position. Following each debate is a brief note of some recent events relevant to that issue, and finally some sources for those wishing to explore the issue further." -- Preface.
