Other Lands, Other Peoples; A Country-by-Country Fact Book.
Greenberg, Nancy M., Ed.
This fifth edition has been designed for use by teachers and students as a supplement to regular textbooks as well as for the original purpose of providing vital information for foreign visitors. The 141 independent or quasi-independent nations of Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the South Pacific, Africa, Latin America, and Canada are described. Each successive edition since the first (1960) has been thoroughly revised and expanded to provide concise, up-to-date information on the population, cultures, government, history, economics, and the principal geographic features of each country: included are location, size, major cities, language, religion, political conditions, and educational systems. A calendar of national holidays, a list of the United Nations members, and notes on Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam are found in the appendices. The pages are perforated to allow distribution of the individual country fact sheets. (SBE)
