Politics for Beginners

Publisher: Usborne

Politics is more than just the people running the country – it's everywhere and affects everyone. This book is a great start to understanding the breadth of politics and how it reaches into every aspect of society.

It breaks down different political systems, introduces ideologies and examines big questions around human rights and freedom of speech. Most importantly, it clearly explains how anyone can get involved in politics to make a change.

As political decisions are at the forefront of the news while opinions and fake news flood social media, it's increasingly important for students to learn how to look at things analytically and make their own judgements.

This book is clearly written with engaging graphics and doesn't skirt around the nuances of issues, showing that things aren't always as clear-cut or black-and-white as some people would have us believe.
