From Madison to Cairo and around the world, government, politics, political participation and protest are in the news. Whether you are answering your children's questions about current events or want to brush up on government and civics yourself, DK Publishing's primer, Who's in Charge? How Governments Make the World Go Round is an informative and engaging look at how countries and groups around the world organize society. It offers both an historical and wide-ranging perspective on how different political systems function and the way government and citizenship are defined in different countries. You can read it cover to cover or dip in for trivia that may surprise even the most avid political junkies.
