Synopsis

Groundwork Climate Change by Shelley Tanaka

A series of books for Key stages 3 - 4, aimed at secondary school librarians, these 4 titles provide an overview of key and contemporary political and social issues covered at this stage of the curriculum. Ground Work delivers easy to access information and the background behind these sometimes controversial topics in a lively and accessible way. Each book in the series addresses key questions about pressing social issues from: what is climate change and where do we go from here?; globalisation and the widening gap between the rich and the rest of the population; to bridging the gap between different cultures and religions; and the controversial topic of genocide and who is at threat from this ultimate crime against humanity? From shrinking glaciers to erratic weather and threatened water supplies, Climate Change looks at how we got here and what will happen in the future as well as the economic, social and political implications of accepting what is going on.
