This book certainly gets my vote! Any young people who think politics is boring or nothing to do with them will likely have their minds changed by this excellent book. Over bright pages, liberally illustrated with attractive and informative cartoons, it breaks politics down, explaining government and political systems, elections and voting, political change and ideologies, and finishes by posing some big questions, on subjects including war, human rights, feminism, the environment. Various experts have contributed, including John Pienaar, Rachel Reeves MP and Nick Clegg MP, and this is extremely well thought out and well presented. Watch out for the suggestion that school is just a bit feudal, and encourage everyone to look at the section called ‘How to argue’. ~ Andrea Reece
