You Wouldn’t Want to Live without Democracy!


Anne Rooney, David Antram


You Wouldn’t Want To Live Without Democracy! presents an accessible and engaging history of democracy, from its origins in ancient Greece and into modern history, as well as an exploration of how vulnerable it is to being corrupted or overthrown, and how oppressive and vicious life can become when democracy disappears. Specially commissioned cartoon-style illustrations in full colour make this book attractive and accessible even to reluctant readers. Information is conveyed through captions, labels, and humorous speech bubbles in addition to the main text. Illustrated sidebars headed How It Works, Top Tip or You Can Do It supply more facts, describe simple, safe experiments, or steps that readers can take to help make the world a better place.
