  • Battles, protests, standoffs, strikes We hear about them all the time On the surface, a battle and a protest don t seem to have much in common, but they re really just two ways of handling a dispute One uses violence, the other uses signs and picket lines But both start as a disagreement between two groups of people Both are conflicts.Since it s impossible for peopleBattles, protests, standoffs, strikes We hear about them all the time On the surface, a battle and a protest don t seem to have much in common, but they re really just two ways of handling a dispute One uses violence, the other uses signs and picket lines But both start as a disagreement between two groups of people Both are conflicts.Since it s impossible for people to agree on everything all the time, conflicts naturally pop up every day, all over the world Sometimes they turn into full blown wars, which can be a lot trickier to understand than the conflicts that pop up in everyday life, but every conflict has some things in common.Using real world examples, Why Do We Fight teaches kids to recognize the structures, factors, and complex histories that go into creating conflicts, whether personal or global as well as the similarities between both They ll be given tools to seek out information, enabling them to make informed opinions while learning to respect that others may form different ones From culture clashes and trade disputes to disagreements about how to govern, Why Do We Fight insists that the key to fulfilling humankind s wish for world peace lies in how we choose to deal with conflict and provides a genuine cause for optimism in the face of an at times frightening world.

    10. This book takes a complex topic, conflict/war, and breaks it down into the reasons/motivations and terminology necessary to understand it. The writing here is top-notch. All of the concepts were explained in text with examples first and then the term appeared in a sidebar box with its definition. I really liked the way this was done as it helped solidify the concept before it introduced the jargon that may or may not be familiar to readers but surely helps to add complexity to the topic.Formatti [...]

The book, although designed for late tweens and early teens, really helped me understand things better. The book answers the hard questions like: Wh [...]
