Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YAA slim volume that will attract and hold readers' attention. Through its black-and-white comics and snippets of text, this standard figure of high-school history classes is presented in a clear and lively manner. The Italian philosopher's political theories are introduced and tied to those of later leaders up to the present time. Even though the concepts are sophisticated, the graphic format will engage even reluctant readers. A clever and informative treatment.Ginny Ryder, Lee High School, Springfield, VA
