Présentation de l'éditeur
Pros and Cons: A Debaters Handbook offers a unique and invaluable guide to current controversies, providing material for debate on a wide range of topics. Arguments for and against each subject appear in adjacent columns for easy comparison, and related topics and suggestions for possible motions are listed at the end of each entry. Since its publication in 1896 the handbook has been regularly updated and this eighteenth edition includes new issues such as censorship of the internet, genetic engineering and the legalisation of prostitution. The introductory essay describes debating technique, covering the rules, structure and type of debate, and offering tips on how to become a successful speaker. The book is then divided into eight thematic sections, where specific subjects are covered individually.

I was thinking it would have debating techniques in it and was dissapointed to find it really didn't.
I would still recommend this as it does lay out a pro vs. con take on all of the biggest current issues and could be used as a reference guide.
This resource has allowed me to have many debate practices. The resource while not written for Canadians, is very, very easily adapted to our concerns.
The pre-research that has been done for typical debate topics saves any debate coach an incredible amount of time. It can make you the expert on a tremendous number of varied debate topics. It also has several extensions or ancillary debates too.
As well, using the information from this book, I have tried giving the information beforehand to my debaters on a particular debate topic, and with this common background information, have run practices which focus on the rhetoric alone. My students have experienced very good development in this way.
The book is fantastic, and after such a short period of time, well thumbed. I may need to search out a hardcover version.
