About the Author:

Richard Maybury, also known as Uncle Eric, is a world renowned author, lecturer, and geopolitical analyst. He consults with business firms in the U.S. and Europe. Mr. Maybury is the former Global Affairs editor of "Moneyworld" and widely regarded as one of the finest free-market writers in America. Mr. Maybury's articles have appeared in "The Wall Street Journal", "USA Today", and other major publications. He has penned eleven books in the Uncle Eric series. His books have been endorsed by top business leaders, including former U.S. Treasury Secretary William Simon, and he has been interviewed on more than 250 radio and TV shows across America.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up-Maybury is a lecturer and geopolitical analyst. In a statement of disclosure, he expresses his disdain for objectivity, basing his viewpoint on Juris Naturalism, a belief that natural law is higher than any government. Clearly, his series offers a biased perspective. Utilizing an epistolary style of writing, he plays the role of an economist using letters to explain World War I to his nephew. He examines the causes, events, and effects of the conflict, discussing the nature of war and how it influences economics and society in general. There is no documentation for his views except for introducing readers to "Uncle Eric's Model of How the World Works."-L. R. Little, Penticton Public Library, British Columbia, Canada
