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.
