Commonsense Guide to Current Affairs

Description: From clones, family, abortion, terrorism, and the concept of the collective to economics, nuclear power, cap and trade, renewable energy, and the politics of climate change, Everest and Bedogne do something much needed and remarkably absent in today's media. They strip away the layers of liberal and conservative ideology to look at the most talked about topics of our time from the standpoint of what the politicians have forgotten--common sense. Brought to light by logic, history, and science, the book filters the issues that in today's world every citizen, student, and educator needs to understand through what we know to be sound--that which we have gained through our day-to-day trials--our all-too-often repressed ability to see things in a practical and matter-of-fact way. Endorsements: ""On issues ranging from economics and healthcare to environmental policy and an energy plan for America, this book made me think, which kind of screwed up my plans for an entire week. Thank you."" --Thomas W. Pyle Southern Oregon University ""The book addresses terrorism as a tactic employed by groups and individuals to further a political, personal, or ideological cause. Supported by chapters on Islam and Middle Eastern history, the reader will understand the fundamentals of this complicated issue. Commonsense Guide to Current Affairs is a catalyst for critical thought and a significant contribution to the public debate."" --Bill Meulemans, University of Idaho ""For the student and teacher in subjects that range from the sciences to the humanities, Commonsense Guide to Current Affairs is a necessary component of the modern classroom with its emphasis on critical thinking."" --Henri Robert Bettich South Florida Community College About the Contributor(s): The author of the Threshold to Meaning series of science-philosophy books, Vince Bedogne has an academic background that ranges from business, accounting, and economics to physics, engineering and physical anthropology. Marcy Everest is a professor of political science with teaching and research experience at Kings College, University of Oregon, Weber State University, South Florida Community College, and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
