Formatting: The Tools for Team Policy Soucebook has automated Table of Contents. This year, we have listened to your requests and made sure the sourcebook contains no split cards, no color, and no more brackets in evidence! The formatting has been reworked for simplicity and ease of use. Further feedback on the formatting is welcome.
Standard Analysis: As always, every affirmative case and negative brief is centered around a particular thesis with a standard and the impact (MPX) to the stock issue and standard after every card. This provides an incalculable advantage to debaters in the round.
The Writers: The team of researchers brought a range of views and styles to the sourcebook, but all brought an invaluable expertise. The quality of research is among the best in the nation and will prove useful to debaters of all experience levels. I [James Russell] am the executive editor of the sourcebook. John Urback is the assistant editor of the sourcebook. Contributing authors are Brennan Herring, Jacob Beaver, Andrew Shelton, Josh Webb, Grayson Landers, Simon Sefzic, Chandler Pearson, Noah Lombardozzi, and Tyler Burton.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and is ready for a new year of debate!
