Hopkins, David B., Comp.
This handbook is a collection of readings intended to acquaint Peace Corps volunteers with the geography of Botswana, and the culture and daily living customs of the people. The introduction provides techniques to help students use the readings to improve their speaking skills. The first section of the text, the "OXFAM Section," contains materials about the culture of the country; the remaining sections contain selections from primary sources on various topics. The readings are in Setswana and are usually accompanied by a translation on the facing page. The book is illustrated with photographs and pen-and-ink drawings. (AMH)
