As much as we wish for a peaceful world, it seems there is always strife somewhere. This engaging series examines places around the globe where life is anything but serene. Each book focuses on a different nation or region, such as Israel and Palestine, Iran, or Sudan, Somalia, and Ethiopia and explores the history that led to the current conflicts, the issues currently flaring, and the likely resolutions that might lead to a cooling. Young readers will learn about how people not so different from them are trying to make a difference.
