Synopsis

Brazil by Zilah Quezado Deckker

From the frenzied passion of Carnival to the immensity of the dark Amazon, Brazil is a country of mythic proportions. Encompassing half the continent, South America's giant has stretches of unexplored rain forest, islands with pristine tropical beaches and endless rivers. Each book in the ongoing Countries of the World series depicts a major nation and its unique position in the world. The main chapters focus on geography, people and culture, history, government and economy, and nature: at a glance double spreads to present a maximum amount of information in a minimal amount of space, utilizing charts, tables, time lines, and other highly visual elements.Full-page maps highlight physical features, vegetation and ecosystems, history, population, and political organization. As a bonus, most photographs within each chapter are tied to a location on the main map for that chapter. Smaller maps zoom in on special topics, such as migration, rainfall, changing borders, resources, industry, and other important themes. The title features Sidebars that introduce intriguing people, places, and events. It contains a glossary to aid in comprehension of unfamiliar terms. It also features an extensive bibliography that lists books, National Geographic articles, and Web sites. It provides tips for report writers.

Reviews

Although there are many books about Kenya, this one is clearly a standout... For those in need of an overview that is both factual as well as photographic, this is a good choice.
