As the United States becomes more politically divided, the issue of gerrymandering is at the forefront of political debate. While gerrymandering, or manipulating distinct boundaries for political advantages, has largely negative connotations, few experts agree about the best way to redraw districts. In this collection, legal experts, politicians, experts, and ordinary citizens weigh in on this controversial and timely topic. Guided reading questions are included at the end of each article to direct readers to form their own opinions based on what they have read.
