The Education Web Guide team were particularly impressed by the quality and educational content (of the New Internationalist magazine)
For many years I have read the New Internationalist magazine with great respect. Many an article I have written, and film I have made, have had their roots in something I read in the NI.
The New Internationalist magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.

Following the economic meltdown and the triumph of Barack Obama, have the chances of genuine democracy improved?
This updated edition of the No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy explores how democracy has been constricted and deformed by economic power-brokers and a self-serving political class from Birmingham to Bangalore, considering along the way the different tools people in power have used to manipulate democratic principles, such as freedom, to their advantage.
The book includes chapter-length discussions of topics such as the economic meltdown, Barack Obama, eco-democracy, democratizing the economy and democracy in the global south. It is also a guide to the rich diversity of forms of elected government and contains practical ideas for empowering today's voters around the world.
Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.
Also available in eBook version here.
