"The ninth edition of Taking Sides: Clashing views in Gender contains 40 dynamic points of view, separated into 20 challenging, often contentious questions. There is also an "Is there common ground?" section at the end of each issue, which explores whether there is room for compromise on some or all of these controversial topics." -- from preface.
