What is Right and Wrong? Who Decides? Where Do Values Come From? And Other Big Questions

by Michael Rosen and Annemarie Young
£13.99   hardback  Hachette Children's Group (Wayland) (2018)

What is Right and Wrong? Who Decides? Where Do Values Come From? And Other Big Questions by Michael Rosen and Annemarie Young A highly topical look at how our decisions about what is right and wrong play out on an individual, local, national and global scale
 
Every day we make decisions that are underpinned by our ideas of what is right and wrong. But where do these ideas come from? Where do our values come from and who decides which values are used in a society? This book looks at topics that are strongly connected to the values people hold and their ideas of right and wrong, such as democracy, justice, fairness, prejudice and discrimination, education, climate change and war.
 
There are contributions from Laura Bates, Richard Rieser, Tulip Siddiq and Alex Wheatle, who, along with the authors, discuss how their ideas of what is right and wrong have been shaped by their life experiences. Readers are encouraged to think for themselves about the issues discussed and decide which values are important to them.
