Frager, Alan M.; Vanterpool, Maureen
Reading Horizons, v33 n4 p300-12 1993
Presents a point-counterpoint discussion focusing on four issues involved in the positive and negative values of using textbooks: (1) encyclopedic or comprehensive; (2) third-hand sources or efficient compilations; (3) expensive or cost effective; and (4) authors, known and unknown. Suggests that textbook adoption decisions should be based on the goals of the educational program. (RS)
