"This May Help You Understand the World" is the sort of book that will provide you with a springboard to other topics, books, and similar commentaries if you are the sort of person sick of ten-second soundbites, wishing they had a better grasp of complexities of world politics and global issues. Clear, concise language sets the record straight on a diverse range of topics as Lawrence Potter presents answers to fifty-seven questions about the world we live in, stretching from "What is jihad?" to "is fair trade a good thing?" and "Is there still a war in Chechnya?" . Important information including the latest research on environmental issues and the history behind current events worldwide is presented in enough detail to be useful without overwhelming readers with too much making for a balanced, informed reference guide. This edition is complete with a new chapter explaining the problem of Afghanistan, which in doing so explains why it's the sort of chapter that may still be around in the next edition of this super little resource.
