Synopsis

From ancient Greek philosophy to modern governments, find out how different systems and beliefs have developed across the globe.

Introduce children to the concept of politics and find out who's in charge across the world from presidents, prime ministers and dictators, to kings and queens.

This book will look at different systems of leadership that exist globally, looking in particular at how democracies work and what voting and elections are.

It looks at the seven main types of governments/ways of ruling - Anarchy; Dictatorship; Monarchy; Theocracy; Totalitarian; Republic; Democracy. It looks at the set-up of democratic governments, in particular the UK and US and what they do, for example making laws, funding armies, providing services and how they make these things happen and why we pay taxes.

We talk about the different political ideologies that different governments have, such as capitalism and communism, and the spectrum of ideologies from the far left to the far right, including liberalism, socialism, conservatism and fascism - and in between.

How do elections work? What types of elections are there, for example, local, state, for a leader, or national/general, how candidates are chosen, what voting systems are in place, such as PPR and FPP, who is entitled to vote and how votes are cast and counted.

Finally, find out what it takes to become a leader and get people to vote for you. Learn how to get involved by joining school councils or running school elections.

For children aged 9+ and a useful resource for children studying PSHE and Citizenship.
