I think the book is great, the whole department has really benefited from it. An invaluable resource which challenges and inspires pupils. Emma Bailey, Langley Grammar School, Slough This book is well set-out and comprehensively covers all of the subject material that students need for their GCSE exams. Mrs S Weidenbaum, Team Leader - Citizenship, Shenfield High School, Essex We have found this new textbook to be very good. As a Grammar school we find the level of depth in the book to be superior to other GCSE textbooks available and to have secular views expressed helpful to the new syllabus that requires students to express different views in their answers. I would reccommend this book to other teachers. Cathie Nates, Southend High School for Boys, Essex Never before has there been a book so suited for higher end candidates...It is a must for those students capable of acheiving the best. L.
