Description - Politics Is... by DK

The ideas of politics explained clearly and simply for young people.
What is populism? Is socialism the same in China and Cuba? What makes a democracy? If you're not sure, this is the book for you! Look inside to find out why politics matters, and how ideas shape our world.
How do ideas make the world go round? What are the political left and right? What's the difference between capitalism and communism, or democracy and dictatorship? Who really holds the power? Can activism stop climate change, and can pacifism prevent wars? Can everyone have freedom of speech? And what does all this mean for you?

Find out the answers in this book, which unpacks the complicated language and often messy world of politics.

Politics is... looks at the beliefs of political thinkers, leaders, and activists from around the world, covers the key branches of government, and examines authority. While focusing on contemporary issues, the book also traces the history of politics. It explains the ideas and "-isms" that shape our world as well as investigating the role of external factors, such
as protest and the media, in political decision-making.

Whether you're studying politics or fed up with fake news, if you're not sure whether politics matters or why your vote counts, get your hands on this thought-provoking book - it defines the big ideas you need to know and provides inspiration for analysing, interrogating, and changing your world.
