This text encompasses a learning area that is exciting and challenging. It allows students to examine societal and environmental problems and to develop logical arguments to grapple with present day personal, national and international problems such as terrorism, violent retaliation, censorship, repression and ideological conflicts. Each chapter includes sound pedagogical planning principles together with a comprehensive range of practical ideas and examples.
