It is written and illustrated with both Higher and Ordinary level students in mind. Detailed guidance is also given for the research study, which all students must complete. All the required case studies are included with the documentary and visual evidence, and accompanying exercises. Key personalities and key concepts are highlighted, as required by the syllabus.
