Databases That Cover Controversial Issues

To find a controversial topic or to gather research on a topic, Opposing Viewpoints, Issues & Controversies and CQ Researcher are excellent databases to begin your research.  These databases provide full reports on topics that give Pro and Con sides of the argument in addition to background information, timelines, newspaper articles, statistics, and further research.
