Book Review: Today’s Economic Issues: Democrats and Republicans; Today’s Social Issues: Democrats and Republicans

Todd J. Wiebe


Here I get the unique pleasure of reviewing two separate books in one shot. They are the first two volumes in ABC-CLIO’s Across the Aisle series, examining contemporary economic and social issues from the perspectives of America’s two most prominent and increasingly polarized political parties. Both volumes adhere to the same format and structure, and entries are comparable in quality and depth, the only difference being that Today’s Economic Issues contains a forward and introduction, whereas Social Issues has only a brief introduction. The former is an edited volume, whereas the latter is authored solely by Kneeland. As for the main content, the publisher is clearly going for uniformity throughout the series, so with my sincere apologies to the unique contributions of the authors and editors, I will for the most part be reviewing the two books together.
