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.

Grade 5-8?These three series entries are well organized, informative, and entertaining. They present clear overviews of the respective country's history and geography, and provide an up-to-date look at its government, economy, and lifestyles. Detailed descriptions of the religions, languages, and arts and leisure activities of the various peoples who make up each nation are especially interesting. Excellent-quality full-color photographs and reproductions show the people, landforms, buildings, and everyday activities of the particular cultures. Great resources for reports and general reading.?Norma Hunter, Fair Grove Elementary/Middle School Library, MO
