Synopsis

Colombia by Charles F. Gritzner

The only country in South America to border both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Colombia is the continent's fourth-largest country and has the second-largest population behind Brazil. The country's terrain is also one of the most physically diverse in South America, with snow-capped volcanoes, swampy marshes, tropical savannahs, and lush rain forests dotting its landscape. The country is variously made up of people of European, African, and Native American descent, and both the Spanish language and Catholic religion bring these diverse groups together. Colombia takes students on an in-depth journey through this geographically and ethnically varied nation. Handsomely illustrated with full-color photographs and peppered with maps and concise facts at a glance and history at a glance features, this new book is a comprehensive exploration of the people, culture, history, geography, environment, economy, and government of Colombia.

Reviews

New arrivals to the expanding Modern World Nations series should not be missed...assure readers plenty of material suitable for in-depth reports, yet a lively enough style to lend to browsing. All are lasting, ongoing recommendations for librarians seeking to build long-term, quality collections.
