LoveReading View on Politics - Cutting Through the Crap

A highly personal and admittedly biased introduction to some aspects of politics. As a background, Bali Rai looks at how the institutions of government work and at what the different parties stand for and some of the ideologies on which they may, or may not, rest their core beliefs. He then takes a direct look at some of the key issues of the day – the Iraq war, the war on terror, global warming, racism and education and gives his own account of what they are and why they are important. Thought provoking, this is a valuable source of information from which to challenge what’s on the news.

Politics - Cutting Through the Crap Synopsis

What is politics? How does Parliament work? Is the great British democracy even a true democracy? This book provides the information that teenagers want to know. Along with irreverent footnotes and a 'Get Involved' section with a list of Websites and further reading, it is useful for a generation disillusioned by modern politics.

This led to a period in which I did some really boring jobs, like selling random things over the phone, managing the stacking of shelves and letting people into ...
