    With a foreword from the wonderful, award-winning journalist Andrew Marr, Who's In Charge brings politics to life, enabling children aged 7 and above to join the debate and get their voices heard.

    Covering political structures throughout history, from ancient Greek philosophy to modern governments, the book provides a detailed yet accessible insight into different political systems, how laws are made, what happens behind the scenes in parliament and what children can do to get involved.
