From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up—The latest edition of this perennial reference staple retains its familiar format while revising some content and map style. Alphabetically arranged articles on 193 independent countries feature a general overview, a map, and a colorful fact box on a full spread. For smaller nations, these two pages suffice, but most country entries contain more pages with additional sections on people, environment, early and modern history, economy, festivals, the arts, or special features. For example, information on Egypt's agriculture features graphics of an early irrigation system, and "Switzerland" contains a section on the "Meeting Place of Nations" in Geneva. Some countries, such as the United States and Germany, have pages on regional state groupings and others may have articles on geographic features such as Greece's Aegean Islands. Revisions include an article title change from "East European Gypsies" to "East European Roma" and additional paragraphs mentioning the drought in Eritrea, Hurricane Ivan's effect on Grenada, and flash floods in the Dominican Republic. New font and colors brighten up the fact boxes and make the maps' topography stand out. A complete index appears in the last volume, along with a list of Web sites about each nation. This visually appealing resource is suitable for middle and high school reference collections.— Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY
