Grade 4-8 These books cover a wide range of topics, including the land, history, politics, economy, religion, peoples, and foreign relations. They are written by editorial consultants from The Foreign Policy Research Institute (USA), which looks at the world through a statist perspective, meaning that the accounts exhibit that bias. For example, in Iran, nowhere is it mentioned that the Ayatollah Khomeini was assisted by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency during his years in France or that later the U.S. Air Force helped him in his air war with Iraq. However, Sudan informs readers about the ethnic cleansing linked to a private Canadian oil company operating in the area. The books also have small mistakes. For example, Muhammad is referred to as a founder, whereas the Qur'an states that he was the last in a long line of messengers of Islam. In Iraq the shahada reads, There is no God but Allah, when it should read, There is no god but God. The texts contain colorful photos, illustrations, and maps. Despite the problems, the inclusion of a wide range of material makes these titles somewhat useful resources for reports. Fawzia Gilani-Williams, An-Noor School, Windsor, Ontario
