"In addition to providing a comprehensive look at current international issues, Global Issues in Context also aids with links to important historical context and information on countries and cultures. With an organized and user-friendly interface, content is media-rich- always an attractive feature with secondary school audiences, and offers authoritative analysis from a non-US perspective.”
