Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In ancient Greece, the words demos (people) and krates (rule) were first combined to express the novel political concept of "democracy." From those Grecian roots sprouted one of the most effective forms of political rule in human history. Democracy, its history, political developments, and the future of this governmental perspective make up the content of this fine book. In Democracy, author Nathaniel Harris provides a comprehensive overview of the history of democratic institutions. Beginning in the ancient world, Harris traces the convoluted pathway taken by mankind in its pursuit of a representative society. Touching upon topics such as the Industrial Revolution, welfare practices, economic imperialism, warfare, depression and the globalization of the economy, Harris provides readers with an excellent primer on governmental and commercial growth. In the conclusion of his book, Harris points toward the future of democracy and indicates that perhaps only this current system can stand the tests of the new millennium. Democracy, as presented in this illustrated work, seems to represent the "last best hope" of freedom-loving people across the world. As such, it is worthy of study, much as this fine book is worthy of being read. 2001, Raintree Steck-Vaughn, $25.69. Ages 12 up. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
Complex political ideologies can be overwhelming for young adults to grasp and less than scintillating to read. These two titles in the Ideas of the Modern World series, Democracy and Fascism, begin by establishing a common understanding of key terms accompanied by a historical overview of how each philosophy developed both in theory and in practice. Generously illustrated with ample maps as well as both black-and-white and color photographs, the concise and clear text leads readers through the morass of social, cultural, and political ramifications of these diametrically opposed political ideologies. Numerous sidebar entries provide a closer look at specific people, documents, and concepts. An unusual and particularly useful feature of each title is the exploration of how these ideologies have played out and continue to affect countries other than the United States and Germany. Other helpful features in these books include a time line and a list of resources that features novels and movies. The series also includes books on capitalism and communism and is recommended for middle school, junior, and senior high school library collections. Glossary. Index. Illus. Photos. Maps. Further Reading. Chronology.
