The Arms Race
Arms races are often associated with the Cold War, but they're still a reality around the world today. Issues such as military aggression and nuclear weapons are complex, but they're presented to readers in an accessible way. A fact-filled main text, engaging full-color photographs, and helpful graphic organizers richly present details about the arms race. Readers are challenged to think for themselves about international arms races as they explore discussion questions and are asked to compare and contrast the viewpoints of experts. Although news stories about weapons and wars might seem frightening to young people, this volume stresses the importance of facts over fearmongering.
