World politics explained

16th September 2005 at 01:00
Bewildered teenagers urgently need to understand the frightening complexities of international politics, and Making Sense of World Conflicts will help them to do so. It's a 100-page booklet of source materials and suggested classroom activities, focusing less on the ideologies and interests involved and more on the imagery and language in which they are portrayed and discussed. East Timor and Rwanda, Sierra Leone and the streets of Manchester are among the locations. Press clippings, poems, proverbs, personal testimonies and photos are all called in evidence, providing the stimulus for much fruitful argument. Making Sense of World Conflicts costs pound;15 from Oxfam, co BEBC, PO Box 1496, Parkstone BH12 3YD.
