Synopsis

Countries of the World Set by Chelsea House Publishers

Illustrated with full-color, specially commissioned photographs and informative maps, the Countries of the World set draws students into some of the world's most interesting and important countries with detailed information on virtually everything that defines life in a particular place, from the economy and environment to geography and social trends. For geography classes, country reports, and students interested in foreign countries and the United States, this set is the ideal place to begin research. These books trace similar paths through life in each country, making them useful for comparative studies or an in-depth look into a single country. Each attractively designed book contains a wealth of information presented in easy-to-read text, valuable case studies that highlight relevant topics (such as a flooding, a particular industry, a specific example of urban regeneration, or an environmental problem), and key statistics, as well as clearly formulated charts and diagrams. There is a glossary of important terms and a listing of books and Web sites to consult for further information that make the volumes exceptional first-stop resources for research or browsing. Coverage of this title includes: physical geography - main rivers, landforms, climates, and coastal character; resources - from natural resources to national infrastructure; work and leisure; development levels - GDP, literacy, welfare, political organization, and more; and, the environment - a look at the future.
