Book Description
本書『Pros and Cons』(『賛成と反対』)は多種多様な議題を討論するための素材が用意されている。たとえば、賛成・反対それぞれの議論は隣接した欄にひとつひとつ番号がふられて掲載されており、「賛成」と「反対」のそれぞれが同じ番号に対応するようにしてある。同性愛の聖職者から裁判所にカメラを持ち込むことまで、もっともホットな最新トピックをカバーしている。その中には、遺伝子工学、試験管ベビー、インターネット検閲、安楽死、「政治的な正しさ(ポリティカル・コレクトネス)」など、ほかにも多数あり。 --このテキストは、 ハードカバー 版に関連付けられています。

Pros and Cons offers a unique and invaluable guide to current controversies, providing material for debate on a wide range of topics. Arguments for and against each subject appear in adjacent columns for easy comparison and related topics and suggestions for motions are listed at the end of each entry. Since its first publication in 1896 the handbook has been regularly updated and this 18th edition includes new issues such as censorship of the internet, genetic engineering and legalisation of prostitution. The introductory essay describes debating technique: covering the rules, structure and types of debate and offering tips on how to become a successful speaker. The book is then divided into 6 thematic sections, where specific subjects are covered individually.


There are over 130 topics in the broad subject areas of Philosophical/Political Theory; Constitutional/Governance; Politics and Economics: National; Politics and Economics: International; Moral and Religious; Education, Culture and Sport; Law and Crime; Health; Science and Technology. These include specific topics such as: Justifiable Terrorism Internet Cencorship Prostitution 'Outing' Treatment of Animals High Art vs Low Art Zero Tolerance Banning of Smoking Televised Trials Private Schools
