This Week in History – in Books

So, yesterday, Kyle and Baila told us all about how the US ended up with a Naval base on Cuba and how Watson and Crick changed the way we see everything with DNA.
For today’s books, I found two in the Point-Counterpoint series. (This series is not to be confused with the awesomely funny Dan Ackroyd and Jane Curtain skits from Saturday Night Live…if you’re not familiar, ask your folks.) Point-Counterpoint takes controversial issues and looks for experts on both sides of a particular argument. So for today…
history
DNA Evidence looks at the reliability of DNA and how it can compromise or enhance our privacy. The War on Terror tackles issues such as human rights and the efficacy of laws when fighting a war against terror. And these aren’t the only Point-Counterpoint subjects. So come and check them out and have a good debate with yourself.
