              Contemporary Debates

              Each title in the Contemporary Debates series examines the veracity of controversial claims or beliefs surrounding a major political/
              cultural issue in the United States. The purpose of the series is to give readers a clear and unbiased understanding of current issues by
              informing them about falsehoods, half-truths, and misconceptions—and confirming the factual validity of other assertions—that have
              gained traction in America’s political and cultural discourse. Ultimately, this series gives readers the tools for a fuller understanding of
              controversial issues, policies, and laws that occupy center stage in American life and politics.
