BLUE BOOK 2016-2017 STOA Edition

Blue Book returns for the STOA Agriculture/Food Safety topic.

- 12 complete (1AC + 2A backup) Affirmative cases and 12 Negative briefs against them.
- Topic background introductory material. History and current issues about Agriculture & Food Safety.
- Introduction to debate theory and strategy
- New format this year: 3 cases release during July 2016. The rest release during the season week by week.

Blue Book promotes high quality debate rounds by:

- Impacting Harms and Disadvantages. We ask, "Why is that bad? So what?" and we don't stop until we reach a real impact.
- Plan Advocacy / Solvency evidence. Someone besides the Affirmative team who says the plan will work.
- Credible sources, fully cited. No homeless bums or random bloggers.
- All factual claims evidentially supported. No assumptions, assertions, guesswork, or claims not supported by evidence.
- Careful attention to ethical standards for date citations, context, author's intent, proper use of brackets. Ellipses are never added.
