Marijuana Today

Marijuana Today

In recent years, there has been a sea-change in the perception of marijuana in many countries around the world. In some countries, it is now legal to use marijuana for medical and/or recreational purposes, while in others (such as Saudi Arabia), possession and use of marijuana is still a serious crime. Marijuana Today provides a fact-based, non-sensationalistic examination of the issues associated with marijuana. The series seeks to help students obtain a deeper understanding of marijuana-its chemical components, uses, and consumption methods; its growing medical applications; and its recreational usage, as well as societal views on the use of cannabis and increasing career opportunities in the field.

During the 20th century, communism was one of the world's dominant forms of government. During the late 1980s, communist regimes held power across much of Asia, Eastern Europe, and parts of Africa. By the early 1990s, however, most of the communist regimes had been replaced. Today only China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam operate under communist political systems. This book explores the principles that underpin communism, and examines the way communist governments have exercised power in practice.

Democracy: the People?s Government 9781422240168 $37.10 $29.68

Denice Butler

Today, the basic ideas underpinning democracy-that government exists for the benefit of the people, and that it must have their consent to be legitimate-may seem obvious. Even dictators pay lip service to these ideas. But the logic of democracy hasn't always been widely accepted. In fact, throughout most of recorded history, nearly all rulers claimed absolute authority. This book traces the long evolution of government 'by the people,' from its roots in the ancient world to the present day.

Fascism: Radical Nationalism 9781422240199 $37.10 $29.68

Sam Portus

In the turbulent years after World War I, a new type of governing philosophy known as fascism emerged in a handful of countries-most notably in Italy under Benito Mussolini and in Germany under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. Fascism denied that individuals had any rights the state was bound to respect. It demanded that citizens blindly obey their leader. It glorified violence. It promised to purify a degraded culture and restore the nation to greatness. Fascism led to some of the darkest episodes in human history-including the Holocaust and the Second World War. This book details the rise and fall of a discredited form of government.
