The text was designed to accommodate students with various academic backgrounds. Most of the chapters contain two types of text materials. In the basic text portion of each chapter, information is presented at a level suitable for beginning college students. Here students are given a solid foundation in the topic and a background that will enable them to participate in class discussions. The second type of material consists of controversy boxes set off from the general text. The controversy boxes provide examples of disagreements on environmental policy and contain capsule quotes from opposing parties.
