Booklist, Series Nonfiction Showcase

The Choosing Democracy series (4 titles) examines the important topic of democracy from a variety of angles. Active Citizenship in Democracy defines democracy, offering examples of how young people can make their voices heard through activism, and citing the importance of voting, jury duty, civil service jobs, and government representatives; it also introduces the concepts of full versus flawed democracies and the democracy index. Stock photos and historical artwork mix with charts and maps to lend visual interest, while case studies provide concrete examples to illuminate each book’s main text. There is some topical overlap among the volumes, but this will help reinforce concepts essential to developing a more nuanced grasp of democracy.
