This is a useful series for students needing information about societal issues surrounding the use of the Internet. Each book provides overviews, discussions, primary sources, and facts about the featured topics. Students will find the information easy to understand and integrate into their research. Color charts and graphs clearly illustrate the numerous statistics and well-organized factual material. Source lists lead readers to more in-depth material. More substantive sources would have been welcome in Cyberbullying, but the journalistic references offer a sense of currency, and high school readers will relate to examples from the news provided throughout the series. As a whole, the series offers current, reliable, interesting, and well-organized information. Virginia Stone, Assistant Librarian, St. Christopher’s School, Richmond, Virginia
