    Good question! Richard Maybury, author of Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, expresses in a lucid manner the workings of our legal system. Written as a series of letters to a nephew from Uncle Eric, topics include a discussion of the origins of government, principles on which our government is based, history of law, the difference between scientific law (how our government was intended) and political law (what we've ended up with), components of common law, reasons for government, and unsolved legal problems. This widely-endorsed book is also sprinkled with quotations from famous political teachers. An excellent introduction to law and justice! Revised edition.

    This book closely follows the same format as Richard Maybury's WWI book, but focuses on events and ideas of the Second World War. Through a series of letters, Uncle Eric explains how thoughts and actions during the war set the stage for the world we live in today. He links the poor way America entered and handled the second world war with subsequent wars such as the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the Iraq-Kuwait War, and even the Wars on Terrorism that began September 11, 2001. ~ Rachel S.

    In this book, Richard Maybury presents an idea-based explanation of the First World War. He explains how the explosion of the battleship Maine in 1898 was the beginning of a chain reaction that continues even today. Like other Maybury books, this one is written as a series of letters from Uncle Eric to his nephew. He focuses on the ideas and events that led to the war, events during the war, and how things led into WWII. Using stories and examples, he gives interesting and clear explanations on topics that can be difficult to understand. Timelines, maps, and quotes add to the book. Index and glossary included. ~ Rachel S.
