Library materials to support the 2016 Critical Issues Symposium

The Fall 2016 CIS, “Economic Inequality in a Democratic Society,” is just around the corner and in keeping tradition with previous years the library has put together an online guide to select books/ebooks, videos, and articles to income inequalityaccompany the two day event.

If you’re looking for a nice overview of this year’s “critical issue,” check out this 2014 article from CQ Researcher entitled, “Wealth and Inequality: Does the Gap Between Rich and Poor Threaten Democracy?”  Or, explore the topic from different perspectives in the “Opposing Viewpoints” databases.  From the “Contemporary World Issues” series, the library also has online access to Rich and Poor in America: A Reference Handbook, which deals with economic inequality both in the U.S. and globally.

And there is so much more!
The guide is available now, so please explore at your leisure and get in the know about this very important and complex issue.
