"In addition to providing a comprehensive look at current international issues, Global Issues in Context also aids with links to important historical context and information on countries and cultures. With an organized and user-friendly interface, content is media-rich- always an attractive feature with secondary school audiences, and offers authoritative analysis from a non-US perspective.”
"This product could easily be used in a high school or undergraduate library for basic research needs. The students will appreciate the cross-linked articles and the multimedia features. It would also be a welcome addition to larger public libraries for patrons researching countries for business needs and travel to foreign countries or patrons interested in current events."
