The Lovereading4Kids comment

Packed full of useful information and very clearly explained, this is a timely book for the forthcoming election. All aspects of who makes the rules under which people live, how different governments rule in different ways and how and why they have evolved are concisely set out on eye-catching pages. As Andrew Marr explains in the introduction, everyone lives under rules but who makes them and how do they make their decisions. There are loads of answers here and the index makes it easy to help with the finding out.
