Overview

World Economy Explained outlines the background of the economic problems that have shaken the world in recent years. It describes how our global economic system has evolved and how it operates today. The series also explains some of the causes and effects of the financial problems that many people and countries are currently facing.

International Aid and Loans describes the system through which the richer, developed countries of the world offer loans to poorer, less developed countries. It explains some of the motives for offering these loans, as well as why they can benefit both lenders and borrowers. It looks at why loans may contribute to the problems of borrowing countries, and at why some people in the lending countries oppose this system. Quoting many firsthand accounts, it encourages readers to form their own views on world economic issues.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
This introduction to the concepts and vocabulary of life cycles initially asks the question: "What is an animal?" There are many different kinds of animals, but they all?have a few things in common. They reproduce and need to find food. One major distinction is whether they have a backbone or not. Vertebrate or nonvertebrate, animals go through a series of life events. Some of the changes are gradual while others are dramatic and abrupt. The stages of animal life cycles are birth, courtship, reproduction, caring for the young, and growing up. There are so many animals in the world that scientists have put them into groups. Many species have been identified but there are many more to discover in remote rain forests and the deep ocean. This publication is well illustrated with photographs of the numerous animals discussed. An extensive glossary and quizzes in each chapter are valuable additions. Animal Life Cycle is one of the "Earth's Cycles" series. Reviewer: Kristin Harris
