Synopsis

Portugal by National Geographic Society

Savouring life slowly is a Portuguese passion, and much of the best pleasures are humble: traditional folk festivals; simple, honest food drowning in olive oil; music that pulls at the heart strings, recalling past love and glory; and markets overflowing with fish, fruit and flowers. 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; and full-page maps that 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. 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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
