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. Both are conflicts.
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. From culture clashes and trade disputes to disagreements about how to govern, Why Do We Fight? insists that the key to peace lies in how we choose to deal with conflict. It provides tools to help readers seek out information, make informed opinions, and learn to respect that others may think differently.
