Description

Many of us do not fully understand the world, or its recent past. It's all too complicated, and well, foreign and far away. Every day the newspaper brings us more news than we can possibly assimilate in a single morning but without much of the background needed to put it into context. Lawrence Potter assures you that it is ok to need more information than is carried in the newspapers, people do want to understand the facts behind the headlines, and makes it his business to help. Answering questions on a wide range of current themes such as: 'How do we know if an NGO is doing a good job?' Is George Bush stupid?' and 'What's Wrong with Plastic Bags?', this book provides a guide to the world events that we think we ought to know about.
