What is tolerance? And intolerance? This book presents all those arguments that have sustained such behaviors throughout history, and deals in a sensitive, creative way with issues such as race, sex, religious and ethnic discrimination, as well as related topics including terrorism and totalitarianism. A topic that today is more relevant than ever: accepting differences. We recommend it to stimulate critical reading among youngsters. It is an ideal starting point in the study of social sciences by way of an issue which children come across on a daily basis in their classrooms, their relationships with peers, and the news in newspapers and TV.
We tackle subjects that touch highly sensitive cords for all human beings, such as emotions, feelings, values, and prejudices. Their reading should lead to essential questions: Who are we? What are our values? What is life? What are those things that thrill us, worry us, and define us?
