Richard Tames is a Heinemann-Raintree author.From Booklist:
Reviewed with David Downing's Democracy.
Gr. 5-8. These two well-written books in the Political and Economic Systems series (the series title appears only in the CIP) will give students a solid foundation for understanding both history and government. Democracy explains how this system of governing began and then goes on to discuss its evolution in Greece and Rome and how events in Britain and France eventually brought democracy to North America. The book lists democracy's "crucial elements," compares the strengths and weaknesses of democracies, examines how economic theory affects democracy, and discusses the problems and potential for international democracies beyond borders. Dictatorship examines what a dictatorship entails, its origins, and the different styles and what they achieve. Short profiles of various dictators (Mao, Sukarno, Pinochet, and Milosevic, among others) round out the treatment. The series format is generally appealing with good-sized type and neatly bordered black-and-white and color photographs. Each book features a glossary, a time line, a brief bibliography, and short list of Web sites. Another book in the series, Facism, overlaps with Dictatorship and may not need to be purchased.
