Sweden by National Geographic Society

Sweden is a land of contradictions that make an unexpectedly pleasing whole. Starkly beautiful lake and forest landscapes contrast with stylish, modern cities; the country is as famous for its Viking-era sites as it is known for its cutting-edge technology; even the flat, relatively balmy south contrasts with the mountainous, Arctic north. Each book in the ongoing Countries of the World series depicts a major nation and its unique position in the world.The features of the series include: main chapters that 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 that highlight physical features, vegetation and ecosystems, history, population, and political organization; and 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. It includes special feature sidebars that introduce intriguing people, places, and events; a glossary to aid in comprehension of unfamiliar terms; and an extensive bibliography that lists books, National Geographic articles, and Web sites, plus tips for report writers.
