9780761406846: Ukraine (Cultures of the World)

Diversity is the spice of life, and the highly regarded Cultures of the World series celebrates just that in fully updated, and expanded editions. As has always been true of these outstanding titles, an abundance of vibrant photographs -- including those new to this edition -- stimulate the imaginations of young readers as they travel the globe. A new chapter on the environment focuses on politics and economics as well as on endangered species and the effects of industrialization. Additional authentic recipes add general interest while new maps offer further, easy-to-find facts in "About the Geography, " "About the Culture" and "About the Economy" sections.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7-10--All three titles present information on geography, history, government, lifestyle, festivals, and other social and cultural topics. The rigidity of the series format seems to limit the authors of Armenia and Ukraine, which tend to read like reference books. However, Kagda manages to tell an interesting story in Lithuania, by writing gracefully and eschewing the use of too much detail, a fault that often makes the other two volumes too dry. In fact, parts of Armenia may overwhelm some readers who are not already familiar with the country's history and religion. Ukraine has many serious misstatements, instances of incorrect punctuation, and odd choices of vocabulary. There is even a chart purporting to show the Ukrainian alphabet, but has nonsensical symbols instead. All three volumes have very good color photographs but limited glossaries of only one page. The books on Armenia and Ukraine in the "Then and Now" series (both 1993, Lerner) are much more cohesive and readable than the volumes considered here. While Lithuania is excellent (except for two mistakes about the language) and offers more historical depth, readers wishing a more personalized account of the country's situation in the early 1990s may wish to consult Stephen Chicoine and Brent Ashabranner's Lithuania (Cobblehill, 1995).
