Gale Introduces Global Viewpoints Series – Explore Worldwide Perspectives on Current Issues

Farmington Hills, Mich., Jan. 15, 2009 – Readers now have easy access to a wide range of international perspectives on issues of worldwide importance such as drugs, famine, immigration and many others through a new print series from Greenhaven Press, an imprint of Gale, part of Cengage Learning. Global Viewpoints examines a range of current, often controversial issues and topics, from a variety of international perspectives.

“This is a valuable resource for students, instructors, media specialists and others wanting to understand current global issues better,” said Christine Nasso, publisher of Gale’s Greenhaven Press imprint.   “Each Global Viewpoints anthology delivers contemporary views on the featured issue, and is unique because the majority of the material reflects stances of countries other than the United States.”

Today’s hottest issues are given a broad, international treatment, which is essential to a well-rounded understanding of these vital issues. Students from high school through college, as well as general readers, can use Global Viewpoints to compare and contrast unique perspectives while appreciating the interconnection that global priorities bring to all nations and cultures.

Each Global Viewpoints anthology:

  • Delivers contemporary views on the featured issue
  • Features a wealth of speeches, government documents, essays from respected authors, articles from international magazines and information from worldwide news sources
  • Provides a truly panoramic perspective on the issues that drive today’s world – issues like climate change, immigration, the war in Iraq, famine, marriage, child labor, drugs, freedom of expression and more
  • Contains unique content that does not overlap with any other Greenhaven Press series or titles

Eight to 10 new titles will be published in this series each year.
