Opposing Viewpoints Series
Greenhaven Press, (Thomson Gale) in Michigan, offers a series of books and papers called The Opposing Viewpoints Series. The link given here is a pretty complete list. The series slogan is "Those who do not know their opponent's arguments do not completely understand their own." Elsewhere, I have suggested that this approach to presenting arguments ought to be developed into a database and offered as educational software.
In 2006, I had a contribution published in Teenage Sexuality: Opposing Viewpoints, edited by Ken R. Wells. My contribution is "Homosexuality Should Be Discussed in High School," on p. 183. This is the first publication of something by me in a book that was published by an independent third party. The opposing viewpoint has a "not" in the title and is by Linda P. Harvey. Various other essays concern the effect of the Internet on teens, age of consent, and whether unwed teens with kids should marry.
