About This Set

Truly comprehending the news and what's going on in the world requires an understanding of some key vocabulary. Master these terms and the ideas behind them, and the events that shape many countries begin to make sense. The language involving political systems is some of this essential vocabulary. In these books, as readers learn about communism, socialism, democracy, dictatorships, and more, they'll develop an understanding of past history, such as the rise of Hitler, as well as insight into current momentous events, including the Arab Spring. Each book features sidebars, photos, captions and a conclusion summary chapter.
