Overview

Systems of Government examines the five major forms of government in the world today. Each book reveals the inner workings of one form of government, setting it in the context of history and relating it to today's turbulent current affairs. Readers will learn how these governments function internally and within the wider world community. They will also encounter some of the dilemmas, contradictions, and compromises that seem to be an essential part of even the most idealistic political systems.

Each book features fact boxes, timelines, and carefully chosen images that complement informative text that is packed with case studies and firsthand accounts. Voting Booth panels invite readers to consider thorny issues, both historical and current, and to form their own opinions.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
From ancient times to the present day some human societies have been organized under the understanding that a ruling royal family was the preferred method of governance. In this title from the illustrated "Systems of Government" series readers are provided the history and etiology of monarchy as a force for government in human development. As is the case with other books in this series, Monarchy provides readers with an analysis of this particular form of government in ways that include textual narrative, thought provoking question inserts, primary source voices from the past, and highlighted historical information. This combined approach works well and results in a fine summary of how kings and queens arose, survived, were overthrown, and in some instances persist in our own era. What is particularly interesting are those sections dealing with current monarchies and the reasons why they have survived. Readers with any interest in "royals" and their function will enjoy this introductory work. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
