Synopsis

Groundwork Genocide by Jane Springer

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? This book provides an overview of the history of genocide worldwide. As well as answering key questions surrounding this topic such as What is genocide? Where has it happened in the past? and Who is being threatened by genocide today? it also addresses the debates and controversies surrounding the use of this term.
