Pornography

Pornography

Written by: Nathan, Debbie
Series edited by: Springer, Jane
ages 14 and up / grades 9 and up

Informative and thought-provoking, this book from one of the most interesting and original thinkers currently looking at human sexuality provides a fresh view of pornography. Clearly and concisely written for young adults.

Pornography addresses a very important issue in a rational, analytical manner. Society tells us that we aren't supposed to look at pornography — much less talk publicly about it — but the Internet has created unprecedented access to porn over the last few years.

This book deals with pornography as a social issue, translating the best academic research into reader-friendly language.

"[The Groundwork Guides] are excellent books, mandatory for school libraries and the increasing body of young people prepared to take ownership of the situations and problems previous generations have left them." — Globe and Mail
