Gilbert H. Muller's The New World Reader, ISBN 9781439083383 facilitates and challenges students to investigate the most vital challenges around the globe in this modern day and age. This text encourages readers to tap into their critical-thinking skills as they consider the various issues that affect their lives. Challenges and issues addressed include such as globalization, gender roles, global warming, and bilingual education. The world's most reputable and accomplished writers are included in this resource through various reading passages that beg students to consider the ever-changing and challenging world around them. Some of the writers featured in this text include Al Gore, Bill Gates, Octavio Paz, and Jane Goodall. George H. Muller, Professor Emeritus of English at LaGuardia Community College, has authored several books. Within The New World Reader, Muller incorporates the use of several student-centered features to allow for comprehension and application of what students read. Features such as brief chapter introductions, author headnotes, as well as pre-reading questions provide students with an effective preview of the topics within each section. Each selection is also followed by exercise sets which challenge students to put feet to their learning and apply principles. This collection of reading selections is thoughtfully organized into chapters revolving around 11 different challenges or issues. Many chapters are titled with a single, thought-provoking question to entice readers to consider differing views. Some questions include 'Are we becoming a universal nation?' 'Does language unify or divide us?' 'Are sex and gender roles changing?' 'What are the consequences of globalization?' and 'Can we reduce disease and poverty?'
