Synopsis

Politics - Cutting Through the Crap by Bali Rai

What is politics? How does Parliament work? Is the great British democracy even a true democracy? And why are politicians such massive liars? Humorous and entirely biased, this book provides the information that teenagers really want - and need - to know. Complete with equally irreverent footnotes and a 'Get Involved' section with a list of websites and further reading, this fresh and entirely readable book is essential for a generation disillusioned by modern politics. Michael Moore, beware!
