A pron box that examines two competing sides of a single question

A detailed chronology of key dates and events

An annotated bibliography and Web resources

An outlook section that addresses possible regulation and initiatives from Capitol Hill and the White House over the next 5 to 10 years

Photos, charts, graphs, and maps
