Gr 7-10 —This series dives into hard to read histories of injustice globally but with a focus on the US. Students will learn about the Chinese Exclusion Act, the Fair Housing Act, the Equal Rights Amendments, the Indian Removal Act, and the internment of Japanese Americans. Each title follows through to the present day but in some cases, such as Roe v. Wade, is already out of date. The final chapter in each book provides ways to help stop injustice. The books begin with a section called 'At A Glance' which provides a quick overview of the topics to be discussed and introduces important definitions. Other vocabulary words are bolded on the pages. Back matter includes source notes, further reading, and an index. VERDICT A good introduction to painful moments in time that were often ignored by textbooks.

In this offering from the Exploring Social Injustice series (4 titles), readers have the chance to dig into some of the social inequities tied to climate change and the environment. An introduction defines what is meant by "climate and environmental injustice," and four chapters follow that examine the issue's history, current status, important moments of activism, and future goals. Well organized and clearly written, the book opens with a list of the text's major points and closes with a glossary of terms essential to fully grasping the topic at hand. Throughout, relevant topical asides appear in red boxes and colorful photos add visual interest. This is a solid pick for those who want to learn more about this important issue and how they can make a significant change.
