Why Do We Fight?

Foreword Review — Fall 2013

By providing an understanding of how world conflicts develop and peace agreements emerge, this comprehensive book motivates youth to educate themselves rather than become frightened of the terrors they hear on the news. Kid-­friendly definitions, historical examples of war and resolution, and quotes from activists and political leaders make this primer for global relations an important source for children expressing an early interest in politics and social justice. Ages ten to fourteen.
