Synopsis

Why Do We Fight?: Conflict, War and Peace by Niki Walker

It's a big world out there, but what's going on around the world can feel closer to us and more accessible than ever. Information about wars and conflicts on the other side of the world can be in our homes and on our tablets and smartphones instantly. Whether or not your country is directly involved in a conflict or war, nearly every disagreement, every standoff, every war affects our lives in some way. With so many conflicts happening around the world, it makes you wonder - Why Do We Fight? Why Do We Fight? is an important, topical book that helps readers aged 12 and up to understand that while conflict may be inevitable, war isn't. The reader is shown how small disagreements can escalate to become bigger and more serious ones, by exposing the common elements of conflict: such as prejudice, history, geography and economics. The reader is encouraged to compare world conflicts with the ones in their own lives, to better understand why we fight and, most importantly, what we can do to avoid it.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
